ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- A man who uses his car to spread an anti-abortion message is suing the city of Ann Arbor and its police chief over what he says is the violation of his free-speech rights.
Paul Dobrowolski displays signs with phrases such as "Abortion hurts women" in the window of a vehicle he parks outside a Planned Parenthood facility. The federal lawsuit was filed Tuesday.
The suit says Dobrowolski was ticketed twice last year for violating a portion of the city code that prohibits parking a vehicle on a street for the purpose of displaying advertising.
One of Dobrowolski's signs gives the name, phone number and address of a facility that provides free ultrasounds.
Ann Arbor Mayor John Hieftje says he doesn't comment on pending litigation, but "the city enforces the law."
