New York's Joint Commission on Public Ethics has dropped its case against an activist it says violated lobbying laws.

JCOPE says Kat Sullivan used more than $5,000 to buy digital billboards and fly a banner over the state Capitol in support of the Child Victims Act.


The commission stands by its argument that violated state lobbying laws and should have been reported.

Sullivan said she was acting on her own behalf after getting the money in a sex abuse settlement from Emma Willard.

JCOPE sent a letter to Sullivan this week saying it would take no further action against her.

Sullivan says she still wants an apology from the state and JCOPE.
