Argument day podcasts: Snyder v. Phelps

Beginning this Term’s series of five-minute podcasts on oral argument days, we have two new podcasts below with attorneys who filed briefs on both sides of Snyder v. Phelps (09-751).   At issue in the case is whether the First Amendment protects protesters at a funeral from liability for intentionally inflicting emotional distress on the family of the deceased.  To listen to the podcasts, click the the purple images on the right.

For the petitioners, an amicus:

Stephen R. McAllister, Solicitor General of Kansas, representing Kansas, forty-seven other states, and the District of Columbia.

For the respondents, their counsel:

Margie J. Phelps
