Homeless Feedings Update

You know the old expression, "Don't make a federal case out of it"? That's probably how Mayor Nutter feels about the hearings that begin today in front of a federal judge to determine if the prohibition against feeding the homeless on the Parkway violates the rights of religious groups. The suit—against the City of Philadelphia and Mayor Nutter specifically—is being filed by the Philly chapter of the ACLU as well as local civil rights lawyers. [Inquirer]
