Horse advocates must wait for 1st Amendment ruling

RENO, Nev. (AP) - There may or may not be too many horses on federal lands in the West but there's not enough U.S. district judges in Nevada to deal with an appeal over First Amendment rights at wild horse roundups anytime soon.

U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks told lawyers for the government and a horse protection group he won't make a ruling until after March on a case sent back to his court last year by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The lawsuit was brought by Laura Leigh, a photographer and leader of the group Wild Horse Education who says her First Amendment rights were violated in 2010 when she was denied access to mustang roundups in Nevada's eastern Lincoln County near the Utah line.
