Klein v. San Clemente, No. 08-55015

In a First Amendment challenge to a city ordinance prohibiting all leafleting of unoccupied vehicles, the district court's denial of a preliminary injunction is reversed where plaintiffs were likely to succeed in demonstrating that the city's justification for its prohibition was insufficient and they otherwise met the requirements for obtaining a preliminary injunction enjoining enforcement of the prohibition.
