White Coat Waste Project v. Gtr. Richmond Transit Co.

Plaintiff White Coat Waste Project sought to place an ad on GRTC buses advocating an end to experimentation on dogs at Richmond Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center. When GRTC denied the proposal based on its policy against “political” advertisements, the group sued, claiming viewpoint discrimination and unconstitutional vagueness. White Coat plausibly alleged that GRTC is a public entity that provides transportation, that the ad spaces are a non-public form, and that the ad restrictions are not viewpoint-neutral. Motion to dismiss denied.
