Spring Hill barred from enforcing campaign sign law

SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) -- A Middle Tennessee court has temporarily barred Spring Hill from limiting residents to one political campaign yard sign per office.

According to The Daily Herald in Columbia, the restraining order was obtained by George Jones, who is running for mayor of Spring Hill. He says a local ordinance limiting campaign signs to one per resident for each office is unconstitutional. Jones is a former mayor of the city of more than 23,000 residents.

Circuit Court Judge Robert L. Holloway issued the temporary order Wednesday, pending an April 5 hearing. The city election day is April 11.

Spring Hill City Administrator Victor Lay said the city will comply with the judge's instructions, but he declined further comment.
