Today, Jan. 10, 2013, the Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF) announced that after three years, pro-life sidewalk counselor David Hamilton has resolved the lawsuit brought against him by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.
LLDF says that David Hamilton was arrested and sued by the federal government. Eric Holder's pro-abortion connections are well known, the report says, and his sentiments toward the pro-life movement have long been evident. Hamilton eventually agreed to settle as it brings a degree of closure to the case and prevents further attempts by Holder to pursue an injunction against him.
Hamilton was arrested in January 2010, after crossing through a line of pro-abortion protesters who had illegally blocked the sidewalk in front of a downtown Louisville abortion clinic. Hamilton was not part of the pro-abortion protest; Hamilton had only walked through it while speaking with a woman entering the abortion clinic.
Dana Cody, Executive Director of LLDF said,
"The initial charges against Hamilton were appropriately dismissed by the local police," then went on to say, "but almost a year later, Holder filed a lawsuit against him under the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act. This case is just one of many lawsuits he (Holder) has filed against pro-lifers in minor situations."
All of this is a great waste of taxpayer money and considerable infringement upon citizen rights.
Considering the sometimes weird views of the courts and some attorneys, the agreed-upon settlement will go to a pro-abortion protester, because she was jostled by an unknown subject. The pro-abortion protester has testified that the settlement to ‘her’ is unwarranted. But no matter, the courts will do as they please.
