CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- Two teachers have filed a lawsuit saying their rights were violated when they were arrested outside a political rally for President Bush.
Alice McCabe, 54, and Christine Nelson, 53, both of Cedar Rapids, are seeking damages from the U.S. Secret Service and three agents, the Iowa State Patrol and two troopers and Linn County.
The lawsuit says Secret Service agents asked the women to move from spots outside Noelridge Park during the Sept. 3 event. The women say they were arrested for trespassing when they questioned the agents.
A Secret Service agent then told two other agents McCabe and Nelson were displaying signs of disagreement with the Bush administration's policies, according to the lawsuit.
McCabe and Nelson were changed with interference with official acts, which was dismissed Dec. 15.
