Federal Lawsuit Settled Against the City of Rockford

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The City of Rockford has settled a five year old law suit with Rockford's Pro-Life Initiative.

The agreement between the Thomas More Society and the city will result in changes to city ordinances. The city will also pay attorney fees and some compensation. The Rockford Police Department will also be subject to a new training program focusing on the public's first amendment rights.

Despite our calls, neither side was available for comment Friday night.
