NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on a First Amendment case that the Supreme Court hears today, which could determine whether municipalities may place limits on door-to-door solicitors. The Jehovah's Witnesses are challenging a local ordinance in Ohio that requires people going door to door to obtain a permit and identify themselves. The church group says the Constitution gives them the right to talk to people anonymously. The Stratton, Ohio, village attorney says everyone will be given a permit, but there is no constitutional guarantee of anonymity.
