Ohio--Homeschoolers Win Daytime Curfew Battle!

Dear HSLDA members and friends:

At about 4 Monday evening, Home School Legal Defense Association was
informed of a city council meeting in Lyndhurst, Ohio, where a daytime
curfew ordinance was going to be considered and potentially voted on.
In a last minute call to action, because the meeting was at 8 p.m.,
HSLDA sent out an e-lert to families within driving distance of
Lyndhurst, asking them to show up at the meeting to oppose this
infringement of family freedoms. HSLDA also provided a memorandum
explaining the illegality of daytime curfews, equipping attendees to
back up their opposition with legal arguments.

Despite the last-minute notice, over 50 people, the majority of whom
were homeschoolers, showed up for the meeting. Even the news media
caught wind of the controversy and came to cover the meeting.

It did not take long for the council to acknowledge and yield to the
show of opposition. We have been informed that the ordinance has been
withdrawn and will not be considered any further. HSLDA would like to
thank those families that took the effort to go to the meeting or call
the council. Your voices were heard!

Sincerely,


Scott W. Somerville, Esq.
HSLDA Staff Attorney

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
