A federal judge ruled that the city of Boston violated a white supremacist group’s freedom of expression when it refused to grant it a permit for an anti- homosexual parade. U.S. District Judge George O’Toole awarded a Mississippi- based group called the Nationalist Movement $700 in compensatory damages. The case stemmed from a 1994 incident in which the group was not issued a permit to rally in support of the sponsors of a St. Patrick’s Day parade who canceled their march rather than comply with a federal injunction requiring them to let Irish gays march.
