Minister carrying sign before Giants game settles suit

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, March 23, 2016

A traveling minister who carried his “John 3:16” sign to Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park before a Giants game, and said he was told to leave or face arrest, has settled his lawsuit for $10,000.

Gino Emmerich sued the city of San Francisco, but the settlement funds — $2,500 to Emmerich and $7,500 to his lawyer — will come from ESPN, which was filming the pregame activities and hired city police to keep order, City Attorney Dennis Herrera’s office said Tuesday. As part of the settlement, the city agreed to review the status of the plaza and the extent of the public’s right to carry signs or express opinions there.

“This is at least a very fuzzy area, who owns this Willie Mays Plaza and who has the right to decide who can or can’t be there,” said attorney Michael Millen, who represented Emmerich along with the Rutherford Institute.
