A judge denied the injunction Target wanted against Canvass for a Cause, the California group that tries to talk to people about same-sex marriage, which means that they can keep on canvassing:
The retail giant had filed an injunction trying to keep Canvass for a Cause from picketing at its stores statewide. A California Superior Court judge in San Diego County denied that injunction but placed specific rules on what the group can do, according to court documents filed Thursday.
The group can only canvas one store entrance at any given time so customers' acces to the store isn't impeded, the judge ruled. Also, group members are not allowed to "harass, follow, stalk, or block movements of Target's employees, management or customers."
There was a lot of discussion on a previous post about whether this is actually Target's property or not. Some of the incident reports Target submitted were for actions on their property, some were clearly discussing public property in front of Target stores, while most didn't mention where the canvassers were.
That wasn't the heart of Target's complaint, which was that these canvassers make the chain seem gay-friendly and they're worried about losing customers because of that. I really can't bring myself to care about that complaint.
