ACLU sues LA county Sheriff's Dept. over harassment to photographers

Hope this is in the right forum and that I am not double posting. I read this earlier today.
Interesting news story in the never ending "problem" of taking pictures in public places, law enforcement and photographer's rights.

ACLU sues Sheriff's Department, alleges photographers were harassed -

Excellent. I love the ACLU! I split all my charitable donations between the ACLU, the Red Cross, and occasionally the EFF.

If the photographer wanted to, he could sue in civil court on Prior Restraint grounds. He could then take the money and start a legal defense fund for photographers.
