MILWAUKEE - Efforts to resolve a lawsuit against the host city of the Republican National Convention over its plans for demonstrations during next month's event fell apart in a mediation hearing Monday, according to court records.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin sued the city of Milwaukee in federal court earlier this month, saying the city's plans for demonstrations during the July 15-18 RNC violate the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The lawsuit was brought on behalf of the Coalition to March on the RNC 2024 and seeks a determination that the city's "extraordinary event ordinance" for the RNC is unconstitutional. It also seeks a temporary restraining order prohibiting the city from enforcing portions of the ordinance during the RNC.

A hearing scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. CST Monday before Magistrate Judge Stephen C. Dries ended mid-afternoon with the parties unable to reach an agreement, according to federal court records. The case now returns to U.S. District Court Judge Brett H. Ludwig.
