In the summer of 2013, Capitol Police began arresting protesters in large numbers. Some protesters were arrested dozens of times, and hundreds of tickets — mostly civil rather than criminal forfeitures — were written. The Voice Project got involved with an advocacy campaign including a new video (which was checked by Politifact and found to be true) and petition, working in concert with activists on the ground. On January 29, 2015, Wisconsin’s Fourth District Court of Appeals dismissed all of the approximately 400 cases brought against the Solidarity Singers. Six protesters were awarded $44,830 in damages from the state.
