Freedom of Expression & Religion
Case No. No. 2007-CV-1373, Arapahoe County District Court; No. 001955M, Englewood Municipal Court
ACLU Case No. 2007-08


Mike Mahaney owns Headed West, which sells pipes and smoking accessories in Englewood, Colorado. After Mr. Mahaney painted two murals on the side of his business, the City of Englewood charged a store employee, Michael Allard, with violating the Englewood Sign Code. In addition to defending Mr. Allard, ACLU attorneys filed suit in state district court seeking a declaration that the Sign Code violates the right of free expression, both on its face and as applied to the Headed West murals.
