Public Housing Trespass Ban Upheld
Housing authorities across the country have tried to use similar laws to reduce drug dealing and violence. " 'The U.S. Supreme Court has today made it clear that trespass policies like the one at Whitcomb Court will not be struck down as overbroad so long as they do not target speech,' [Virginia Attorney General Jerry W. Kilgore] said. 'There is a fundamental difference between a trespass policy which is applicable to everyone and a policy that seeks to regulate constitutionally protected expression.' "
