Indiana woman seeks to end suit against preaching ex-trooper

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana woman who sued a now former state trooper, claiming he violated her civil rights by preaching to her during a traffic stop, wants to end her lawsuit.

Wendy Pyle’s attorney filed a notice in federal court in Indianapolis on Tuesday, asking a judge to dismiss the suit.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana’s legal director, Ken Falk, said Wednesday that Pyle wants to end her lawsuit because “the case was resolved” to her satisfaction. He declined to comment further.

Pyle sued Brian Hamilton in April, claiming he violated her civil rights by asking her during a January traffic stop what church she attended and whether she was saved.

State Police fired Hamilton for insubordination two days later, saying he disobeyed a written order to stop preaching.
