Remember how the Long Beach police defended their decision to detain photographers if they believed whatever they were photographing had "no aesthetic value?" Well, it seems that the ACLU took notice of that. Neppe alerts us to the news that the Los Angeles sheriff's department has been sued by some photographers and the ACLU for its activities in harassing photographers. The specific claims are violations of both the 1st and 4th Amendments. Should be an interesting case to watch, especially for photographers, who are increasingly harassed these days.
