University of Baltimore Law Review


In Linmark, the Supreme Court held unconstitutional a ban on "For Sale" and "Sold" lawn signs that was enacted to curb what residents perceived as panic selling by white homeowners. The authors analyze the effect of this case on "For Sale" sign bans that exist in Maryland. The authors also examine the decision in light of other recent commercial speech cases which have established a first amendment interest in the free flow of truthful and legitimate commercial information.
