CASE ENTRY

Shurtleff v. City of Boston

Boston city hall occasionally flies a guest flag. That could be the flag of another country, the LGBT rainbow flag, a flag commemorating Juneteenth, what have you. But a request to fly a Christian flag is rejected. First Circuit: And that’s ok. This is government speech, and the government is free to steer clear of religion.
