Pastor Plans To Protest Friday And May Fight Court Ruling

Florida pastor Terry Jones says he isn't through with Michigan.
Jones says he'll be back this Friday to protest outside Dearborn City Hall, and he may file a lawsuit against Wayne County prosecutors and other government offices over his arrest.
County prosecutors had filed a complaint to make Jones stay away from the mosque for a planned rally because they said it would breach peace.
A jury sided Friday with the prosecutors and Jones was handcuffed.
The arrest happened before the planned protest- and that's why the Quaran-burning pastor says he's suing on the grounds of a First Amendment violation.
