In Food Employees v. Logan Valley Plaza, Inc., 391 U.S. 308, 313-314 (1968), the U.S. Supreme Court held that there is a free speech right to picket a business within a privately owned shopping center because it operated as the equivalent of a business district open to the public.

Justices Hugo Black, John Harlan II and Byron White dissented.

The U.S. Supreme Court later overruled the basis of this decision in Hudgens v. NLRB, 424 U.S. 507, 518, 96 S. Ct. 1029, 47 L. Ed. 2d 196 (1976) ("[W]e make clear now, if it was not clear before, that the rationale of Logan Valley did not survive the Court's decision in Lloyd Corp. v. Tanner, 407 U.S. 551, 92 S. Ct. 2219, 33 L. Ed. 2d 131 (1972).")
