KS Files Amicus Brief Against Westboro Baptist, Phelps

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.
