Excerpt:
"The Permanent Injunction of the TSP requested by Plaintiffs is granted 
inasmuch as each of the factors required to be met to sustain such an 
injunction have undisputedly been met. 59  The irreparable injury 
necessary to warrant injunctive relief is clear, as the First and Fourth 
Amendment rights of Plaintiffs are violated by the TSP.  See Dombrowski 
v. Pfister, 380 U.S. 479 (1965).  The irreparable injury conversely 
sustained by Defendants under this injunction may be rectified by 
compliance with our Constitution and/or statutory law, as amended if 
necessary.  Plaintiffs have prevailed, and the public \interest is 
clear, in this matter.  It is the upholding of our Constitution."
