Louisiana's Supreme Court has thrown out a New Orleans ordinance limiting street art sales to two parts of the French Quarter, saying it violates the right to free speech. The 5-2 ruling came in the case of Lawrence Clark, who was ticketed for showing art for sale in the broad median of a street on the edge of the French Quarter. He and public defender Laura Bixby challenged the ordinance rather than pay the $500 fine.
