NAA filed an amicus curiae brief in June 2011 before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Circuit, in a case challenging a U.S. Postal Service regulatory ban on expressive activity on postal campus sidewalks. The Postal Service issued notices nationwide in fall 2010 demanding that newsracks be removed from USPS property.
