Fredric Baumann felt it an opportunity to hand-out Christian tracks outside of the Cumming Georgia city fairgrounds. Police arrested Bauman on the grounds of him not having a parade permit. He was locked up in jail for two days.
Baumans representation, David Cortman of the Alliance Defense Fund, stated "Mr. Baumann should not have been treated as a second-class citizen. No one should be required to request permission from the government before handing out religious literature on a public sidewalk.’"
One man is not a parade; Ga. town acted illegally in criminal case against resident - Lawsuit contests city of Cumming’s unconstitutional ordinance that led to denial of man’s right to express his religious beliefs
