Police Department settles suit by Utah ARAs for $15,368

The Unified Police Department has agreed to pay more than $15,000 to
settle a federal lawsuit by animal-rights advocates who said their
constitutional rights were violated when they were forced to end a
demonstration in May.

Fourteen members of Salt Lake Animal Advocacy Movement (SLAAM) decided
on May 8 to hold a spontaneous demonstration that day near 700 West
and 8600 South, adjacent to a facility operated by the Fur Breeders
Agricultural Cooperative, according to the suit. It says the
protesters wanted to inform the public about their opposition to fur
farming.
