Mormons in First Amendment Battle in Salt Lake City

In the beginning, the City sold the Mormons a block of Main Street near their Temple Square. The City retained an easement allowing the public access to the block, but only for those who obeyed church rules on dress, conduct and expression. That includes a ban on proselytizing for any other faith. Many non-Mormons were outraged. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed in this opinion, published in October. The Washington Post has published an interesting article about the conflict here.
