Free Speech Lawsuit
Canterbury agrees to pay $60,000 settlement in civil rights lawsuit.
Canterbury, CT: (May-20-08) Jeanette Kildea filed a complaint with the American Civil Liberties Union against the first selectman, alleging that he unlawfully banned public comment at Board of Selectmen meetings. Sources familiar with the negotiations stated that the two sides had reached a settlement agreement.
Under the terms of the agreement, Jeanette Kildea was awarded $60,000 by the city of Canterbury, resolving the free speech battle between the two.
