"Organizers of Boston's main St. Patrick's Day parade won a court victory Monday in a dispute over whether an anti-war group should have been allowed to march at the end of this year's parade. The South Boston Allied War Veterans Council, which hosts the event, sued the city in October after police allowed the anti-war group to walk behind the main procession. Federal Magistrate Robert B. Collings ruled that allowing such unauthorized groups to march so close to the actual parade was a violation of the organizers' free-speech rights. He said unauthorized groups now must march at least a mile behind the parade."
