The Kansas Attorney General's office filed an amicus brief with SCOTUS against Fred Phelps and his Topeka-based Westboro Baptist Church. The brief argues it is constitutional for a state to protect privacy through "funeral picketing and protest" and state tort laws. Forty-seven states and D.C. joined the brief (Virginia and Maine declined). Morningsun.net (Pittsburgh, KS) has the story.
