Alliance Defending Freedom, Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran attorney's announced (earlier):

ATLANTA - A federal district court ruled Wednesday that city of Atlanta rules which led to the termination of Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran are unconstitutional. The court found that the city's policies restricting non-work speech, like a book for Christian men that Cochran wrote, are too broad and allow city officials to unconstitutionally discriminate against views with which they disagree.

"The government can't force its employees to get its permission before engaging in free speech," said ADF Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot, who argued before the court on behalf of Cochran last month. "In addition, as the court found, the city can't leave such decisions to the whims of government officials. This ruling benefits not only Chief Cochran, but also other employees who want to write books or speak about matters unrelated to work. Atlanta can no longer force them to get permission or deny them permission just because certain officials disagree with the views expressed."
Cochran's Legal Counsel "Christmas comes early" comments.
