Alliance for Animals settles lawsuit against Dane County

The Alliance for Animals has settled its lawsuit against Dane County for alleged free speech violations for $30,000.

The lawsuit, which was filed in November, alleged that members of the group were improperly issued citations in 2009 and 2011 when they handed out animal rights literature outside the Shrine Circus at the Dane County Coliseum. The group said it had been assured by the county executive’s office that leafleting was allowed on Alliant Center property.

“I am so pleased to have been able to defend the free speech rights of Alliance for Animals and its members,” the group’s lawyer, Andrea Farrell, said in a statement. “I believe our lawsuit has helped ensure that my clients will have the opportunity to let their voices be heard as they continue to work tirelessly to ensure that the animals’ voices are heard.”
