    “The Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling is a victory for everyone’s freedom of speech,” said Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel David Cortman. “Speech discrimination is wrong regardless of whether the government intended to violate the First Amendment or not, and it doesn’t matter if the government thinks its discrimination was well-intended.”

    According to the group, the Supreme Court’s ruling provides parameters in which the government cannot decide which speech is deserving of greater protection under the law, essentially ruling that such differentiation is discriminatory in nature.

    Political signs were permitted to be up to 32 feet and were allowed to remain on display for months, while church and non-profit signs advertising events were permitted to be six square feet and up for no more than 14 hours, according to the Alliance Defending Freedom.

    These rules have now been overturned.
