Ann Arbor to settle lawsuit after ticketing prolife advocate

The City of Ann Arbor will pay $7,000 to settle a lawsuit with a prolife sidewalk counselor. They ticketed him twice for advertising free ultrasounds with signs in his car outside of the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.

The city ticketed Dobrowolski on May 29 and June 4 last year for displaying the signs, and on two occasions he paid $25 fines to the city.

Language on Dobrowolski’s signs included "Ask to see the Ultrasound," "Abortion Hurts Women" and "Free Ultrasound, Family Life Services, 2950 Packard, YPSI, 734-434-3088."
