ANSWER Prevails in D.C. Circuit

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has reversed a district court’s dismissal of a suit by Act Now to Stop War and End Racism Coalition (“ANSWER”) and the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation challenging the District of Columbia Department of Transportation’s regulations governing the placement of posters.  The district court had dismissed the suit for lack of standing and on Younger abstention grounds due to pending administrative charges against ANSWER.  The D.C. Circuit reversed and remanded on both grounds.
