USNWR Opinion Piece on Snyder v. Phelps

U.S. News & World Report Weekly has published my brief opinion piece on the Synder v. Phelps "funeral protest" case.  You can access the piece here.  The feature is called "Two Takes."  I argue that the tort liability imposed on the Phelps family for protesting near the private funeral of a soldier is inconsistent with the First Amendment.  Walter Dellinger, former acting Solicitor General, argues that the protesters have no First Amendment right to "hijack" a private funeral.
