ALLEGAN, MI (WHTC) - An out-of-court settlement of a civil lawsuit filed against the City of Allegan, along with its Police Department and some officers, has resulted in 500 dollars going to the plaintiffs, which included former State House Republican Dave Agema of Grandville. They contended that First Amendment rights were violated when authorities shut down a planned speech by ex-terrorist Kamal Saleem at Allegan High two years ago. Authorities closed down the gathering after school officials found out about a bounty placed by Muslim groups on Saleem's head and feared for the safety of students participating in after-school activities at the same time as his planned speech. Agema will receive $2 as his share of the settlement.
