Legacy 106, Inc. Wins California Appellate Court Decision!
The California Appellate Court upheld the October 2014 Superior Court Decision that California Law protects the Constitutional rights of Free Speech in the defense of historical buildings at City Council hearings. The Appellate Court affirmed copyright, intellectual property rights, and the right to post reports on the Internet to better inform the public on historical matters. Authors of environmental protection reports and technical history reports have this protection to ensure the elected decision-makers will receive the best possible and objective information for making decisions. Legacy 106, Inc. is proud to defend Free Speech rights in historic preservation. Click here to read the Court Decision. (PDF)
