Regulating Offensiveness: Snyder v. Phelps, Emotion, and the First Amendment

05 Oct 2010 02:08pm Christina Wells 

Since 2005, the Reverend Fred Phelps and other members of the Westboro Baptist Church have outraged almost everyone by protesting near military funerals. In Snyder v. Phelps the Supreme Court will finally decide whether that outrage is actionable. Few people will lose sleep if the Court finds that the First Amendment allows Albert Snyder to sue the Phelpses for intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy for protesting near his son's funeral. After all, their messages, including statements such as "Semper Fi Fags," "Thank God for Dead Soldiers," "America is Doomed," "God Hates the USA," "God Hates You," and "Pope in Hell" were objectionable and mean-spirited. Snyder must have viewed their speech as "an affront of the most egregious kind."

Liability and the Health Care Bill: An “Alternative” Perspective

The recently passed health care bill contains many provisions that deserve celebration. Improving access to care is an important first step. Enhancing patient safety and accountability is an important second step, one that proponents of medical malpractice reform often undermine with attempts to restrict the liability of health care providers through “litigation alternatives.” During the health care debate, these advocates frequently raised liability issues (couched in politicized rhetoric), despite studies that show civil litigation is protecting patient safety in the health care system now and will continue to play a significant role in the future.
