South Korea court ruled ban on nighttime assemblies unconstitutional
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On September 24, 2009, the South Korean Constitutional Court ruled that a ban on nighttime assemblies is an unconstitutional violation of the right to free assembly. The ruling came in the case of a man charged with organizing a street rally over imported beef and mad-cow disease at night, in which a district court asked the Constitutional Court to decide the constitutionality of the law. Rights groups welcomed the ruling.
