Judicial Watch Sues DC Mayor For Ignoring Requests To Paint ‘Because No One Is Above the Law’ On Street

Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit against Washington D.C.’s Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser for ignoring the group’s request to paint “Because No One Is Above The Law!”, the group’s motto, on a City street after she allowed “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the Police” to be painted on a city block.

“Mayor Bowser gave us the runaround rather than access, as the First Amendment requires, to a DC street to paint our timely message and motto: Because No One is Above the Law!” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Our message is especially relevant today because it applies equally to law enforcement and public officials as well as to protesters, looters, and rioters.”

Judicial Watch first submitted their request to Bowser’s office on June 10, giving her three days to respond. The watchdog group even offered to pay for the painting.

Three weeks later, the Mayor hasn’t responded to their request prompting JW to take legal action. The group alleges in their lawsuit that the D.C. government “denied timely, equal access to Judicial Watch to paint its own expressive message and violated federal civil rights law.”

On Tuesday, the group sent a similar request to paint their motto in New York City. Mayor Bill de Blasio has yet to respond to their inquiry.
