U.S. Court, 2-1, Upsets State's Flag Misuse Law HARTFORD, (AP) - Con- ncclicul's law .against misuse of tlie U.S. Iliiu wiis ruled unconstitutional Tuesday by a federal court-with one of the three judges registering a vigorous dissent. The ease involved a request by William P. Thoms of East Hartford, a University of Harl- ford student, who asked for an injunction lo prevent police from prosecuting him when he wore his American Flag vest. While ruling the state law un constitutional, the federal court declined to issue an injunction- .because it said it had no reason to believe police would try to enforce an unconstitutional s t a t u t e . Disagrees With Majority Disagreeing with the majority of the judicial panel, U.S District Court Judge T. Emmet Clarie said the stale has clear interest in preventing misuse of the (lag-not head off violent reactions to such conduct, but also in "the maintenance of the integrity o Ihis nation's symbol of sover eignty, its people and the heri (age of ideals which they cher ish." Clarie debunked the idea tha to make misuse of the flag ille (;al is to deny people their righ to freedom of speech under the First Amendment to the U.S Constitution. The slate law "in no way lim its the use of defiant or con temptuous spoken words di reeled toward the [lag, no does it deny or restrain thi right t o . a free and open.criti cism of the principles for whicl (he flag stands," said Clarie. The hreach-of-peace argu menl is. an important one, sai Clarie, adding: "Flag misuse i TESKEY'S PACKAGE STORE 2» Llndley St., lrid c rp»rt Phone 33S-1387 Larcesl Display «r HOLIDAY ITEMS K R I D G I ' l ' O U T POST Wcdiicsfhv. Xov. 10. 1971 ery likely to provoke violence eciuse many citizens regard uch conduct as 'fighting U.S. District Judge M. Joseph Jlumgnfeld, author of the ma- ority opinion, said, however, t h e law is overly broad nd could allow people .to be rosecuted for "verbal defilement" of the Hag. Citing other federal court rul- ngs in similar cases, Blumen- eld concluded that the law unconstitutional "because it nakes criminal t h a t which un- cr the Constitution may not be made a crime." Broid Law U.S. Circuit Judge J. Joseph milh concurred in Blumen- eld's conclusion, but made il :lcur he was doing so only be- :ausc of a U.S. Court of Ap- eals ruling against a similar Ne'v York law in the case of 'Long Island Vietnam Moratorium Committee vs. Kahn." Smith also expressed the hope that Connecticut's law could be clarified in the state courts. The state' courts should have an opportunity to sever and salvage the portion of the statute directed to destruction or dc- 'ilement of the Mag, or we should hold invalid only the 'speech' aspects," said Smith. Early Ihis year the Connecticut Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from a lower court ruling upholding the constitutionality pi the Flag Law.
