DC Metro must pay $35,000 for violating First Amendment rights

The Washington City Paper (via Jihad Watch and Atlas Shrugs) reports that a good move was made in dealing with the transit company that tried to trample on Pamela Geller's free speech rights:
Thanks to Metro, "Anti-jihad" blogger Pamela Geller—or her attorney—is now a little bit richer. The transit agency's ill-fated attempt to delay running ads from Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative group that equated Muslims with savages will cost the agency $35,000 in attorney's fees for AFDI, according to a new email obtained by the Legal Times.

In the email (below), dated Oct. 17, an unnamed associate general counsel for Metro writes to an unnamed recipient, presumably someone with AFDI, that the agency would pay $35,000 in fees and costs. Earlier that month, a federal judge had ruled that Metro had to run the ads, despite Metro's concerns that it would inflame tensions in the Middle East.
DC Metro has only signaled hysteria by balking at running the ads. Now, they're being given something to think about for their cowardice.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
