Parishioner's Arrest For Trespass Does Not Violate 1st or 4th Amendments
In Lye v. City of Lacey, (WD WA, Feb. 8, 2013), a Washington federal district court rejected claims that police officers violated Hui Son Lye's 1st and 4th Amendment rights when they arrested her for trespass at the request of Sacred Heart Catholic Church. The Church issued Lye a "no trespass" order after she disrupted services several times with her demands that the Church conduct Mass in Korean.
