This was posted as a wiki project, but is more appropriate as a blog post. The poster linked to an article titled Dad of a fallen marine perseveres against protests at military funerals and asked these questions:
- I am just wondering what people think about this.
- Secondly, did the protesters have a right to protest at the funeral?
I’ll go first. I think the protesters’ message and choice of forum are despicable. I believe they are engaged in protected speech and have the right to protest at the funeral. I would have to read the opinion to know why the court ordered the plaintiff to pay the defendants’ legal fees.
