Commonwealth v. Bradley

A jury found Bradley guilty of defiant trespass after he was arrested for using his phone to video record in the lobby of a police station, which contained a posted “No Recording” sign. The Superior Court affirmed the conviction.

On appeal, Bradley argued that forbidding him to record in a public area, i.e., the lobby of a police station, violated his right to free speech. The Court ruled the no-filming condition imposed in the lobby was a reasonable justification from or restraint on free speech.
