I felt at the time and now that suing the Phelps for being jackasses is like suing the rain for falling. Theologically I understand their position, but because they are completely within the law, it seemed odd that they had the Snyder family Judgment against them. Can the courts actually say you owe somebody money because you used your first amendment rights? No. No they can't.
Phelps v. Snyder finally decided by the Supreme Court and yeah, finally got reversed.
You can't have the courts give you money because a protest hurt your feelings.
For anybody who "Marked my words" back in '07. I dunno if all of that went down, but certainly the reversal was rather required.
