    Our rights under the first amendment are not limitless. There are times when we don't have the right to freedom of speech.

    From what I understand it is very normal to grant the defendant's request to have the accuser pay court costs. They could have appealed this but, submitted their paperwork late. This is simply normal court procedure. If the dad wins at the appellate level, of course, he won't have to pay those costs.

    It seems the protestors were about 1,000 feet away from the funeral and the dad said he didn't even see them until he watched a video of the protest on the news. I don't think these will help his case.

    Speaking of never answering questions, where is your evidence that the judges are liberal in this case? Funny how you ducked that.
    FYI: Two of the judges were appointed by George W. Bush and one of them was appointed by Clinton. What do you know?

    I heard that last night. In fact Chris Mathiews was promoting the fact the O'Rielly was doing it. Kinda interesting how something like this does bring people together.

    Marine's dad ordered to pay protesters' court fees but says he won't | Featured Story | Wichita Eagle

    BALTIMORE - The father of a Marine killed in Iraq and whose funeral was picketed by anti-gay protesters from Kansas was ordered to pay the protesters' appeal costs, his lawyers said Monday. Fox News reported today that he will defy a court order and not pay the protesters' appeal costs.

    "I don't think I'm going to be writing a check until I hear from the Supreme Court," Snyder told Fox News on Tuesday. "I'm not about to pay them anything."

    The two-page decision supplied by attorneys for Albert Snyder of York, Pa., offered no details on how the court came to its decision.

    On Friday, Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ordered Snyder to pay $16,510 to Fred Phelps. Phelps is the leader of Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church, which conducted protests at Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder's funeral in 2006.
    phelps is the scum of the earth. this makes me sick.

    obviously what phelps clan did is disgusting and horrible. But why is it not protected under the first amendment?? All of us on this board can go down to his church, make signs just as rude, and radical as theirs, and protest till the cows come home.

    It is protected by the ffirst amendment...That is the main reason the judges on the 4th circuit overthrew the original verdict..........
