UARC wins civil rights settlement

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 2005:

Utah Animal Rights Coalition members Aaron Lee and Peter
Tucker in early February 2005 received from Salt Lake County $500
each, $500 for UARC, and $10,000 in legal fees and court costs, in
settlement of a lawsuit alleging that their civil rights were
violated when sheriff’s deputy Sherida Holgate told them on December
7 that they could not protest within a block of a public concert
hall. The settlement allowed UARC to amend the case to challenge an
ordinance requiring a permit and 30-day notice to demonstrate on
public property.
