CBR-UK Wins Against Sussex, UK Police

Expressive rights are more secure in the UK today as a consequence of anti-abortion campaigners having forced Sussex Police to admit that they were wrong to have arrested them for displaying shocking abortion photos in the public square. Andrew Stephenson and Kathryn Attwood, founding members of the campaign group called The Center For Bio-Ethical Reform–UK (CBR-UK), prevailed in civil claims which they filed at the Royal Courts of Justice against Sussex Police for unlawfully arresting them on multiple occasions in 2010 and 2011.
