Members of Congress Stand Up for Property Rights

In rare but refreshing bipartisan good news out of Congress, Senator Thom Tillis (R – North Carolina) and Representatives Ben Cline (R - Virginia), Theodore Deutch (D - Florida), Martha Roby (R - Alabama) and Harley Rouda (D – California) have just taken a firm stand protecting property rights – copyrights specifically – and merit our praise.

A 10-year-old boy in Michigan was accused of assault after throwing a ball at the head of another boy during a schoolyard dodgeball game.

According to news reports, the boy “sustained facial issue damage to his face. He had a black eye and a bruised nose.” The mother of the boy who was hit by the ball said she sought legal action because this was not the first time her son had been targeted.

In a Facebook fundraiser seeking support for legal fees, the mother of the accused explained that her son threw the ball at the boy, causing a concussion, and that her son had been suspended from school and then informed of the assault charges.

Prosecutors investigating the case have since decided to drop the charges. “While the charge in this case is certainly sustainable, I have instructed my staff to dismiss this case today,” Maria Miller, assistant prosecuting attorney at the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office said in a press release.
