California AG agrees: California law does not preclude private citizens from displaying Confederate battle flag at county fairs

Last year, California banned a painting of a Civil War battle from a county fair art show, because the painting included a Confederate battle flag. This was a misreading of California law (which, properly read, just limited what material the California government could itself sell and display), and the Center for Individual Rights sued on the artist’s behalf, arguing that this violated the First Amendment.
