Yankees Settle Suit Over Restrictions On Fans

The City of New York in conjunction with the New York Yankees baseball team has settled a lawsuit brought by a fan who alleged that the Yankees restricted him and other fans from moving around during the playing of “God Bless America.”

The settlement requires the City of New York to pay the plaintiff $10,001, and $12,000 in attorney’s fees to the New York Civil Liberties Union Foundation. In addition, the New York Yankees stipulated that it would not impose any restrictions on fans wishing to move about the new Yankee Stadium during the playing of “God Bless America.” See: Campeau-Laurion v. Kelly, USDC, SDNY, No. 1:2009-CV-03790 (JSR) (July 6, 2009).
