Free speech claim rejected

Challenging the government is not working out very well for Robert Steinburg. In 2005, he was tossed out of a Chesterfield County Planning Commission meeting and charged with disorderly conduct after a heated exchange with a commission member. His civil rights suit against the commission was tossed out by federal district Judge Robert Payne last year. Now, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld Judge Payne’s decision. The Richmond Times Dispatch has the story here, the 4th Circuit’s opinion is here.
