ACLU warns Neb. city about anti-fortunetelling law

  • 0

SCOTTSBLUFF - Scottsbluff officials say they're reviewing a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union that says a local ordinance barring fortunetelling is unconstitutional.

ACLU Nebraska said in a letter dated April 21 to Mayor Randy Meininger that a Scottsdale resident had contacted the ACLU about the ordinance, which bans fortunetelling, clairvoyance and divination.

The ACLU asked for assurances that Scottsbluff would not enforce the ordinance and suggested that the city repeal it.

Police Chief Alex Moreno said Tuesday that he doesn't recall any pursuing any such cases.

Deputy city attorney Kent Hadenfeldt says he and his boss, City Attorney Howard Olsen, will look over the letter to see whether any action - or inaction - is merited.
