Citation. 505 U.S. 672, 112 S. Ct. 2711, 120 L. Ed. 2d 541, 1992 U.S.

Brief Fact Summary. The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, Inc., (Petitioner) was prohibited from distributing religious literature in a public airport.

Synopsis of Rule of Law. Airports are not public forums; therefore restrictions need only be reasonable.

Facts. Petitioner participates in an annual “sankirtan” which is used to generate funds for the religion. Lee (Respondent) was the commissioner of the port authority in charge of implementing and enforcing the state regulation prohibiting solicitation in public airports.

Issue. Is an airport a public forum such that a regulation prohibiting solicitation in it violates the United States Constitution?
