Woman banned for years from U.S. city hall gets last laugh

City officials who banned an activist who was documenting – and criticizing – city operations from even entering city hall have been blasted by a judge for violating the Constitution's First Amendment and Equal Protection Clause.

The report comes from the Freedom Center of Missouri, which noted the years-long fight concluded just weeks ago.

The report said a trial was held in Phelps County Circuit Court in Rebecca Varney v. City of Edgar Springs, "a case in which small-town officials banned a resident from city hall for four years simply because she had persistently criticized the way the local government was run."

The result was a "sweeping victory" for Varney.

The center explained, "The judgment included blunt words for the defendants in finding that they had violated Varney’s rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments as well as Missouri’s Sunshine Law."
