Noisy houses really stick out now
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - January 6, 2011 -- It's an orange version of a scarlet letter.
And a federal appeals court says it's OK.
A Rhode Island beach town (Narragansett) has an ordinance that allows authorities to tag houses hosting noisy parties.
The orange sticker law was challenged by University of Rhode Island students who live off-campus.
A federal appeals court has ruled the sticker policy is constitutional, even if a little "unorthodox."
