We're sure Madge was losing a lot of sleep upon finding out that she was being sued by Russian anti-gay activists for hurting their feelings with her "pro-gay propaganda" at a St. Petersburg concert.
Now it looks like she'll be able to rest easy as a Russian judge has thrown out the case.
More after the jump.
"The activists based their case on a video recording where they claimed Madonna could be seen trampling on an Orthodox cross and asking spectators to raise their hands with pink bracelets in support of the gay movement.
Judge Vitaly Barkovsky did not explain his decision but also ruled the activists should compensate legal expenses to companies which organized Madonna's concert. The activists said they will appeal the court ruling.
'Our position is the same. We believe there was a case of the breach of law, namely gay propaganda among minors,' said activist Darya Dedova."
So they're planning to appeal?
Maybe these guys should quit while they're behind...
