The Supreme Court held with the appeals court, which stated that the Community for Creative Non-Violence did not have a right to sleep in the national parks in Washington D.C. as a protest. This was based on the understanding that the State has a significant interest in preserving the condition of the parks, and on the belief that the restrictions in place were appropriately narrow and content-neutral, and therefore did not violate the First Amendment.
