God Hates SCOTUS

DC-area readers with a penchant for hathos should hie themselves to the Supreme Court on October 6th. Margie Phelps (of Westboro fame) will be arguing Snyder v. Phelps. (Snyder seeks damages for the torts of intentional infliction of emotional distress and intrusion on seclusion arising from the Phelps’ usual antics. Amici for the Phelps claim that damages cannot be recovered for speech-based torts “unless the speech at issue contains false factual statements.”) Presumably, Margie will use the opportunity to bring “the words of life and faith to a nation threatened with destruction” (see e.g. here – Margie is to watcher’s-left of Shirley, FYI). Oral arguments begin at 10am.
