$29,000 Walk Around the City

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

 A woman arrested two years ago for topless while  walking in New York City has  settled her civil rights case against the city for  $29,000.   The plaintiff, Jill Coccarro, was arrested and held in jail for 12 hours despite a 1992 court decision, People v. Santorelli,  that granted women the same right as men to appear shirtless in public.   Cnn.com has more here.

    Oh I’ve been wanting to do just this over here in the UK. It’s a protest that I would like to organise but I’m not sure itwould be taken at all seriously. Thanks for the info.
