Case: Springfield v. Humans Against the Consumption of Animals (HACA)
A writ of certiorari is granted on the following two questions:
- In light of this Court’s decision in Pleasant Grove City v. Summum, did the Court of Appeals for the Ames Circuit err in finding that the Ames Specialty License Plate Program involved a hybrid of government and private speech requiring First Amendment protections?
- Assuming at least some private speech is implicated by the Ames Specialty License Plate Program, did the Court of Appeals for the Ames Circuit err in finding that the State’s Specialty License Plate Program created a limited public forum and that the State’s rejection of a vegan non-profit organization’s message was not viewpoint neutral?
