State-Run California Science Center Dismissed From American Freedom Alliance Lawsuit

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On August 24, 2011, Plaintiff American Freedom Alliance (AFA) dismissed, with prejudice, the state run California Science Center (Center) from a pending breach of contract and civil rights lawsuit concerning a private event AFA booked with the private non-profit California Science Center Foundation (Foundation). The parties reached a settlement just prior to a scheduled court hearing on the Center's dispositive motion for summary judgment which, if granted, would have confirmed that the state run Center had no liability in this case.

Key terms of the settlement include the fact that the state run Center would pay no money to AFA, and all parties would bear their own attorneys' fees and costs incurred in this litigation. The Center is pleased to put what it views as a meritless lawsuit behind it, and to continue working to advance its mission of stimulating curiosity and inspiring science learning.
