Town of Fraser changes sign code restrictions amid First Amendment lawsuit over anti-Trump signs

The Denver Post: Amid a lawsuit alleging the town of Fraser is violating residents’ First Amendment rights, the town board changed its sign code — again.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Denver on behalf of Melinda McWilliams and Alan Jensen who posted eight double-sided displays protesting President Donald Trump and calling for action on climate change in Jensen’s front yard starting in January 2017. The signs stayed up until they received a letter from the town manager in September 2018 demanding they remove them within a week or face prosecution for violating the sign code.
