MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin's largest gay rights group has won 87-thousand dollars in legal bills over what a judge called a frivolous lawsuit.

The group Action Wisconsin won the award last week over a suit made by Louisiana pastor Grant Storms.

Storms claimed the group defamed him by saying he advocated the murder of gays at an anti-gay conference in Milwaukee in 2003.
According to a transcript of his speech, Storm said opponents of gay rights should take to the streets.

Then he mimicked the sound of gunfire, saying, quote, "Boom, boom, boom, boom. There's twenty! Ca-ching."
