City of Orange Gives Final Approval to Repeal of Sex Offender Ordinance

The City Council of the City of Orange, in a vote of 4 to 1, gave final approval on October 8 to repeal a city law that required registered citizens to post a sign in front of their residence on Halloween. The City’s first vote on this issue took place on September 24, only six days after a lawsuit was filed in federal district court challenging the ordinance. Prior to filing the lawsuit, the City was asked on September 3 to repeal the ordinance, but failed to consider the issue at its next meeting on September 10. 

“With the repeal of this ordinance, there are no known ordinances in California that require registered citizens to post a sign on or near their residence on Halloween,” stated California RSOL president Janice Bellucci. “This is a significant victory for more than 100,000 registered citizens in the state of California.”

A similar lawsuit was filed in federal district court in September 2012 challenging a similar Halloween ordinance in Simi Valley. In that case, U.S. District Court Judge Percy Anderson granted a partial Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) which prohibited the City of Simi Valley from enforcing an ordinance requiring registered citizens to post a sign on the front door of their residence.
