Judicial Watch is demanding that they be allowed to paint their motto “Because No One is Above the Law” after the city painted, “Black Lives Matter” on a street and allowed protesters to paint, “Defund the Police” next to it.
The organization is claiming that the city needs to allow people with differing views to paint their message or it would be a violation of the First Amendment.
“We have been patient. We also have been flexible. We have stated our willingness to paint our motto at a different location if street closure is necessary and the city is unwilling to close our chosen location. All we ask is that we be afforded the same opportunity to paint our message on a DC street that has been afforded the painters on 16th Street.”

Prior to filing the lawsuit Judicial Watch had attempted to get permission to paint their own slogan on the street, but it was denied because they were told it would interfere with road markings.
The organization then applied for a permit for a different section and they were told to apply for a public space permit. However those types of permits only allow for parades or other similar typed of events.
After trying to get permission to paint their slogan and being given the run around the organization had no choice but to file a lawsuit.
However when protesters painted, “Defund the Police” they did not need permission and the city has allowed their slogan to stay up.
