Women Against the Registry (WAR) has published an article describing a successful legal challenge to a proximity ordinance in Windsor Locks, CT.  


A person forced to register (PFR) filed a civil rights challenge to the town’s ordinance prohibiting him and others from being within the proximity of public services.  His suit claimed he had a constitutional right to access those public services.  The municipality’s counsel agreed that PFRs had these rights.  


It was deemed that the town would lose the lawsuit.  The costs to defend and then have to pay the winner’s attorney’s fees made the decision to repeal the ordinance straightforward.  At least there, the application of critical thinking led to a rational outcome.
