OGDEN — Weber State University’s American Democracy Project will host a discussion Wednesday about Ogden’s gang injunction.
“Constitutional Rights in the Balance: Ogden’s Gang Injunction” will be held at 10:30 a.m. in the Shepherd Union Building Ballroom A.
The presentation will feature Darcy Goddard, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah, and Davis Reymann, cooperating attorney from the law firm Parr Brown Gee and Lowless. Both have argued against the controversial gang injunction.
The injunction was issued in September, limiting the amount of contact Ogden Trece gang members could have with each other, imposing a curfew on members and creating other restrictions.
The ACLU and defense attorneys have fought to suspend the injunction, saying it infringes on legal rights, but it has yet to be suspended.
The presentation is sponsored by the ACLU and WSU’s American Democracy Project, Center for Diversity and Unity, and Convocations Lecture Series.
