Norm Kent believes there is a constitutional right to photograph the All the Right Moves star from a public place on the streets of Fort Lauderdale.
Doesn’t he read Carlos’ blog?
That is so last century:
“You have no right to arrest a citizen for taking a photograph from a public place where he has a legal right to be,” said Norm Kent, an attorney and the editor and publisher of South Florida Gay News. Kent claimed three of his photojournalists have been threatened with arrest for taking pictures from a public sidewalk and a public garage near the movie set. “We have three — three separate individuals on three different occasions,” Kent said. The city of Fort Lauderdale refused to comment, citing pending litigation. City representatives said they did not put up the signs and thought they had been taken down.
“They should have known better than to allow the movie studio to post signs that they’re enforcing, and I am asking the judge to enter a declaratory judgment saying the city has acted illegally,” Kent said.
Good thing civil justice is swift and sure in Broward County and I know Norm will get a hearing soon.
(What, the movie wraps July 24th?)
Hope you enjoyed your stay, Mr. Cruise!
