Judge: Jefferson County homeowner can post political sign

HILLSBORO, Mo. -- An eastern Missouri homeowner has won the right to post a political sign in his yard.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a Jefferson County judge on Thursday ruled that a Pevely homeowners’ association violated Jim Lamprecht’s right to free speech by prohibiting his political sign.

In April 2011 Lamprecht put up a sign showing support for a city Board of Aldermen candidate. Days later, a trustee of the homeowners’ association told him the sign violated subdivision covenants against most signs.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed suit on behalf of Lamprecht.
