Delaware State Police Agree to Pay $50,000 to Resolve Federal Lawsuit Alleging Violation of First Amendment Rights

Jonathan Guessford, 54, was unlawfully prevented from engaging in peaceful protest by Delaware State Police, who cited him for "improper use of a hand signal." He filed a lawsuit alleging that his First Amendment rights were violated, and on Friday, the Delaware State Police agreed to pay $50,000 to resolve the lawsuit. This settlement is a reminder of the importance of protecting First Amendment rights and the right to peacefully protest without fear of retribution from law enforcement.
