A very helpful link from time.com. It covers Snyders opinions by quoting them, and it directly quotes the majority report. It goes into detail about specifics such as Snyders emotional distraught that stemmed from the case and focuses more on his side.
Snyder v. Phelps, 562 U.S. ___ (2011), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that speech on a public sidewalk, about a public issue, cannot be liable for a tort of emotional distress, even if the speech is found to be "outrageous".
At issue was whether the First Amendment protected protests of public protestors at a funeral against tort liability. It involved a claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress made by Albert Snyder, the father of Matthew Snyder, a Marine who died in the Iraq War. The claim was made against the Phelps family, including Fred Phelps, and against Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church (WBC). The Court ruled in favor of Phelps in an 8–1 decision, holding that their speech related to a public issue, and was disseminated on a public sidewalk.
On March 10, 2006, Westboro Baptist Church picketed the funeral of U.S. MarineLance Corporal Matthew A. Snyder, who was killed in a non-combat-related vehicle accident in Iraq on March 3, 2006. On March 8, WBC announced its intention of picketing the funeral in Westminister, Maryland, as it had done at thousands of other funerals throughout the country in protest of what they considered America's increasing tolerance of homosexuality. Picketers displayed placards such as "America is doomed", "You're going to hell", "God hates you", "Fag troops", "Semper fi fags" and "Thank God for dead soldiers". Members of the Patriot Guard were present in support of the Snyder family. WBC published statements on its website that denounced Albert Snyder and his ex-wife for raising their son Catholic, stating they "taught Matthew to defy his creator", "raised him for the devil" and "taught him that God was a liar".
This goes over the simple basic details of the case. The first sentance boils it down nicely and tells you what it's about and the outcome, "The Snyder vs. Phelps was a Supreme Court case in which the Court held that speech on a public sidewalk, about a public issue, cannot be liable for a tort of emotional distress, even if the speech is found to be "outrageous" "
This was the website I originally found the case from. I thought it was interesting because I've been hearing a lot about WBC over the course of the past 2 years and it would be interesting to know more in depth about something they were involved with. This gives a quick and concise overview of the case.
