A Quaker Action Group v. Hickel - Case Brief Summary (Federal Court)

In A Quaker Action Group v. Hickel, 137 U.S.App.D.C. 176, 421 F.2d 1111 (D.C. Cir. 1969), the fact that statistical evidence showed the south sidewalk of Pennsylvania Avenue could contain far more than the 100 persons limit, and Lafayette Park could contain far more than the 500 persons limit placed on demonstrations in each place by the National Park Service, was taken into consideration in determining that the trial judge had not abused his discretion by permitting demonstrations larger than that permitted by the regulations.
