CA science center pays $110,000 over canceled film

LOS ANGELES (AP) ? A controversial documentary can be shown at the California Science Center under terms of a settlement that ends a two-year lawsuit that put a spotlight on the debate pitting evolution against intelligent design.

However, the group that sued the center after a scheduled screening was canceled in 2009 now says it won’t bother to show “Darwin’s Dilemma: The Mystery of the Cambrian Fossil Record” at the center.

Instead, the American Freedom Alliance will take the $110,000 the center’s foundation and its insurer agreed to pay and move on.

Under terms of the settlement reached last month neither side admits wrongdoing.
