City Back in Court Again
City Back in Court Again

A lawsuit filed by Calvin Christian III Tuesday seeks to toss out the city’s ability to tow vehicles of those who violate the Springfield noise ordinance along with other infractions as unconstitutional.  The class action suit is asking the Circuit Court to strike down the city ordinance saying there is no provision for due process.

Christian has filed a number of lawsuits against the city in both circuit and federal court.  Christian, appearing live Tuesday on the “Ray Lytle Show” says he has also been a target of “harrassment” by Springfield Police, allegding he has been followed by police and ticketed that have later been dismissed.
