The Oregonian reports Robert Ekas settled the suit for $4,000.
In his lawsuit, Ekas said that in July 2007, he flipped off a Clackamas
County deputy while driving, and the deputy gave him tickets for illegal
lane change and improper display of license plates. Ekas was acquitted on
the citations. A month later, he gave the finger to another deputy, who
detained him but wrote no tickets.
Ekas alleged he was being harassed.
