We settle our lawsuit with the city of Kingston


Here are some members of MECR who sued the city of Kingston over free speech issues. We were denied our rights in Gallo Park in 2008 and the case was resolved this Tuesday in the US District Court of Albany right before the jury was selected.

The city of Kingston agreed to pay $25,000 in damages, as well as provide a meeting with the new chief of the police. The new chief will also watch DeeDee's video of the Gallo Park police action.

Thanks to all who helped us, and especially to our lawyer, Steven Bergstein.

CONGRATULATIONS! This is terrific! Love that part of the settlement is that the chief of police must watch the video.
