LAX reports US Court of Appeals decision to allow enforcement of non-solicitation of funds at airport.


Los Angeles Airport (LAX) stated yesterday that it is pleased with the US Court of Appeals decision to lift a preliminary injunction imposed in 1997, allowing LAX police to enforce a Los Angeles City ordinance prohibiting solicitation and receipt of funds in the airport.

This decision means that Los Angeles Airport Police are able to enforce the ordinance passed by the city council on 1 April 1997, and upheld by the California Supreme Court on 25 March 2010, to prohibit groups from solicitation and receipt of funds in the terminals, parking areas and adjacent sidewalks.

Organisations are still able to distribute literature and speak to willing travellers, even seek financial support, so long as they don't request immediate exchange of funds.

Violators, if convicted, face up to six months in jail or a fine of USD1,000.
