ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - A Ku Klux Klan group has won a preliminary injunction allowing members to leaflet vehicles today in southeast Missouri.  The ACLU represented the Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK in a lawsuit filed earlier this month against Cape Girardeau.

The suit claimed the city's ban on leafleting unoccupied vehicles violates klan members' free speech rights.  A federal judge ruled late thursday afternoon that the city can't enforce its ordinance while the matter is resolved.
