– On Wednesday, the city of Tulsa will have a chance to make a bold claim: It will be the first city in the United States to win a fair use lawsuit against a law designed to protect the First Amendment.
On Tuesday, King Charles III, heir to the throne of the Scottish monarchy, died at age 90.
King Charles II was the first to die at age 99, and many were outraged that the law he signed in the 1790s was still in force.
The Tulsa City Council unanimously passed the “King Charles IX Law” on Tuesday to defend the rights of the public to exercise their First Amendment rights.
The law gives city officials broad powers to regulate events that affect public safety, including the annual Tulsa County Fair.
The city has a strong history of promoting tolerance and diversity in society, but the city’s new mayor, David Clements, said the law was needed to prevent future abuses.
Clements said that in the wake of King Charles’ death, the City Council decided to fight for its right to promote tolerance and that it will use the law as leverage in its fight to protect public safety.
Clement said the city will be seeking damages against the city and its police chief, Richard G. King, Jr., and the Tulsa Police Department for allegedly using excessive force in the arrest of protesters at the fair.
King Charles died at the age of 90, leaving behind a wife and three children.
The Tulsa Police Chief’s daughter, Kristy, won $1.3 million in a civil rights case in January.
The city of Oklahoma is still investigating the case.
King Louis, Louis XIV, Charles VIII, and Louis IX are the last of the 12 children of King Louis, King of France and Louis the Great.
They were the only two kings to have sons born in France.
King Louis died in 1652 and was buried at the church of Saint-Cyr in Lyon, France.
Louis was canonized in 1890 and died at his bedside.
The other six surviving sons were born in Spain and Portugal.
The King Charles law, which was passed in the aftermath of King George VI’s death, is a way to protect free speech and the free exchange of ideas.
It was enacted in 1974, and the law remains on the books as of March 1, 2020.
The statute was amended in 2006 to clarify that the act applies to events that take place within the confines of the fairgrounds and does not extend to events on private property, such as during a basketball game.
The ordinance was challenged in court in 2005 by a local lawyer, and in 2010 a judge ruled that the city was not allowed to enforce the law.
Tulsa City Attorney David Stroud, who is also a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said that because of the limited scope of the ordinance, the judge had not considered its constitutionality.
The law is not limited to the fair, Stroud said, and can be used to enforce laws that prohibit certain actions or conduct, such a banning of protests.
The judge found that the ordinance is not a “strict, narrowly drawn” regulation, but rather is broad enough to allow it to be enforced.
The ordinance was amended by the Tulsa City Commission in 2013, but that amendment was thrown out by the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
Stroud said he would continue to defend King Charles and the other surviving sons.
