A Detroit suburb settled a lawsuit with a pro-lifer who filed a complaint after police insisted he stop sidewalk counseling outside abortion clinics, alleging he was gravely disturbing the peace.

Detroit-township Center Line agreed to pay pro-lifer Michael Mattia a total of $1 dollar after Judge David Lawson ruled in December the suburb’s police forces infringed upon Mattia’s right to free speech, according to the Associated Press as featured in U.S. News. Mattia’s lawyer will receive $50,000. The judge concurred with the agreement on Wednesday.
