Attorneys and Lester Pines settled a civil rights claim against Wisconsin State Representative, Dale Kooyenga, with the State of Wisconsin paying $30,000 in damages for Kooyenga’s theft of a sign with a proper permit that had been displayed in the rotunda of the Wisconsin State Capitol. Kooyenga took the sign because he objected to its criticism of President Trump and his supporters. Commenting on the settlement, Lester Pines was quoted in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “We are pleased with the settlement because it is an acknowledgment by Rep. Kooyenga that he violated the Eighth Commandment-thou shall not steal.”
