Leydon v. Town of Greenwich

Connecticut Supreme Court

257 Conn. 318, 777 A.2d 552 (2001)

Facts

Brenden P. Leydon (plaintiff), a resident of Stamford, Connecticut, attempted to enter Greenwich Point Park (park) in the town of Greenwich (defendant). The park, which Greenwich owned, refused Leydon admission pursuant to an ordinance that limited park access to Greenwich residents and their guests. Leydon intended to use the park for recreational activities and to discuss important issues like public access to the park. Leydon sued Greenwich, alleging that the ordinance violated the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against Greenwich.
