Santa Clarita city officials rescinded a curfew order after reviewing a letter received from the ACLU about a concern over the legality of the city’s curfew, which had been set to take effect at 6 p.m. Thursday.

“We respectfully request that you rescind or substantially restrict the curfew order issued on May 30,” the letter states.

The letter also mentions a lawsuit filed on behalf of “an organization and several individuals challenging similar curfews.”

The letter questions the constitutionality of a “sweeping restriction on free speech and travel across the city.”

City officials acknowledged the letter Thursday afternoon, and said it’s under review. 

Los Angeles County rescinded its curfew Wednesday.
