kingramon0 writes "The Hasting Star Gazette has an interesting story about a city actually willing to change its laws when court precedent clearly show them to be unconstitutional — instead of dragging the matter through court — unlike what we are used to reading.

The city informed Chandler in a letter dated Oct. 1 that the banner was in violation of a city ordinance that prohibits banners in residential districts. The letter also directed Chandler to take it down by Oct. 8. A few days later, after calling the city to inquire about the ordinance they claimed he was violating, Chandler received a letter stating it was a provision in the citys sign code that prohibits campaign signs from going up more than 100 days before an election.
