Henry v. City of Rock Hill, 376 U.S. 776 (1964)

Henry v. City of Rock Hill

No. 826

Decided April 6, 1964

376 U.S. 776


After this Court granted certiorari, vacated the judgment holding petitioners guilty of breach of the peace, and remanded the case to the Supreme Court of South Carolina "for further consideration in light of Edwards v. South Carolina," that court found Edwards and the later case of Fields v. South Carolina, 375 U. S. 44, not controlling, and reaffirmed the convictions.

Held: Edwards and Fields, which established that the peaceful expression of unpopular views at a place not lawfully proscribed by state law is protected by the Fourteenth Amendment from state criminal action, are controlling here.

Certiorari granted and judgment reversed.
