Mancow Drops Lawsuit Against Anti-Indecency Advocate

According to the Illinois Leader, Erich “Mancow” Muller dropped his $3 million lawsuit against Chicago decency advocate Davis Smith after Federal Court Judge David Coar said Mancow's First Amendment claim was "frivolous" and "insubstantial." When Judge Coar remanded the case to state court, Mancow voluntarily dismissed the case.

"I’m relieved that Mancow dismissed his lawsuit against me," said Smith, the father of two young children and the new senior policy analyst for the Illinois Family Institute. “I hope he realizes that our goal was not to attack him personally but to expose and bring an end to his indecent broadcasts that were harmful to children and families.”

Muller's complaint said that Smith filings with the FCC were "a nuisance, repetitive, malicious, untrue, and designed merely for the purpose of harassment," and violated his constitutional right to free speech.
