Area Man Sues City of Pittsfield

Rinaldo Del Gallo, a local lawyer and the event's coordinator, has sued several city officials, including Mayor Sara Hathaway and all the Parks Commissioners (among others), claiming their decision violates his group's First Amendment right to free speech. Berkshire Bureau Chief Arlen Cellana reports.
