The lawsuit over the City of Sacramento's requirement to stand for the national anthem is being settled for $17,000.
This requirement has been in the city code since 1928. If a person was caught violating the law, the punishments included a misdemeanor charge, a fine of up to $1,000 and possible jail time of up to six months. The City Council has since removed the requirement. However, the lawsuit was filed before it was repealed.
