Madison radio talk show co-host files federal civil rights lawsuit

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit will be filed today stemming from the unconstitutional arrest of The Devil's Advocates Radio Show co-host, Dominic Salvia.

Salvia plans to hold a news conference Monday afternoon in the Assembly Parlor of the Wisconsin State Capitol.  Salvia was issued a citation and arrested July 24, 2013, while performing journalistic duties for his political talk radio show.  It also happened to be the first day of the crackdown inside the Capitol.        

Jeff Scott Olson, Madison Civil Rights Attorney, will join Salvia at the news conference after filing the lawsuit.  Salvia    voted    for    Scott    Walker    in   the recall election and never signed a recall petition.  He also never sang or participated in any protest at the Capitol.    
Salvia was there to take photos and observe the Capitol Rotunda scene.  He had been there for less than five minutes before his arrest.  Mr. Salvia informed Capitol officers numerous times they were arresting a member of the working media.  He is seeking monetary damages against the three arresting Capitol police officers for his unconstitutional arrest and detention.  
Attorney Olson will also then react to the State's appeal of Judge John Markson's verdict of unconstitutional in his dismissal of Wisconsin vs. Michael Crute, the other co-host of The Devil's Advocates.
