New Orleans, La. - New Orleans tour guides refuse to give up their fight against requirements that they pass history exams, drug tests and background checks.

A federal judge has rejected their argument that such requirements to secure a city license are a violation of free speech.

Tour guides behind the lawsuit have already submitted paperwork to appeal.

According to our partners at NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune, lawyers for the city argue the requirements ensure tour guides are knowledgeable about the city and behave professionally and safely around visitors.
