A group called “Protect Fayetteville” filed a lawsuit against the ordinance claiming the law violated constitutional rights and a state law.
President of “For Fayetteville” Kyle Smith said more than a year ago the voters decided this ordinance fit the values of their community and they feel confident the court will agree.
The supreme court will release its decision sometime during the next few weeks.
