Lovell v. City of Griffin by Charles Evans Hughes

Lovell v. City of Griffin, GA, 303 U.S. 444 (1938), was a decision of the Supreme Court of the United States. This case was remarkable in its discussion of the requirement of persons to seek government sanction to distribute religious material. In this particular case, the Supreme Court ruled it was not constitutional for a city to require such sanction. Excerpted from Lovell v. City of Griffin on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
