'Capitol Singers' in court

MADISON (WKOW) -- Friday, dozens of 'Capitol Singers' had their day in court.

Court officials say all of them pleaded not guilty.

Some members of the Solidarity Singers have been arrested in recent weeks for demonstrating without a permit.

A federal judge ruled groups of 20 or more people need a permit to gather in the building.

The singers say they shouldn't need a permit to express themselves and promise to fight the charges against them.
