Judge Rules in Favor of Middle Finger Xmas Display

The ACLU won a very unusual First Amendment case.

A federal judge says a Louisiana woman has the right to display holiday lights on her roof in the form of an extended middle finger.

Sarah Childs sued Denham Springs, its mayor and police chief, claiming she was threatened with arrest if she didn't take down the display.

Unsurprisingly, Childs' neighbors complained about the less than festive Christmas display. Child's has been in a dispute with her neighbors. She decided to express her feelings with a one finger salute light display.

I have no opinion about whether or not this is a good ruling. I do wonder why Child's dislikes her neighbors so much.
