Those federal civil rights lawsuits are paying off for Wisconsin Carry Inc., the gun rights advocacy group.

The City of Madison agreed to pay $10,000 to settle a claim brought by the group and five members who were cited or arrested after wearing guns to a Culver’s restaurant last year.

Prosecutors in May decided to drop the charges filed in the matter.

Wisconsin Carry, represented by Georgia gun rights attorney John Monroe, filed and settled similar federal lawsuits over several other arrests of people arrested after openly carrying guns on their porch, ($10,000) a church ($7,500) and other allowable areas ($6,500).
