Nebraska case cited in decision against NC presence restrictions

A federal judge has ruled that parts of North Carolina’s law restricting where registered sex offenders may be is unconstitutional.

The judge relied on several precedents – including the 2012 Doe v. Nebraska decision – to find that those restrictions violate the First Amendment by preventing people from doing things like going to polling places or attending church services.

He also took the state of North Carolina to task for not providing evidence to support its case.
