WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that a town in Arizona violated a local church’s free speech rights by preventing it from posting signs notifying the public of its worship services.

The court, on a unanimous 9-0 vote, ruled in favor of Good News Community Church, which objected to its treatment by town officials in Gilbert, Arizona.
