Suing for the Right to Feed the Homeless


A hearing was held Monday to determine the validity of a lawsuit against the City of Houston. Phillip Paul Bryant, who regularly hands out cans of tuna and water bottles to homeless people is suing the city because of the Charitable Feeding Ban. Judge Kyle Carter’s court heard from Bryant and The City which wants the suit dismissed.

Bryant feels that feeding the homeless is his constitutional right – whether it’s 1 person or 100.

At Monday’s hearing, Judge Carter decided to wait to rule on the lawsuit's validity until after Friday. Dick said he listened intently to the presentations of both sides, and wants to study the issues further. And after that ruling...

Dick says if the ruling goes against the lawsuit, they will appeal. He has a feeling that if the ruling is in favor of his client, the city will do the same.
