In September, we wrote about Snyder v. Phelps, the funeral-picketing case out of the Fourth Circuit.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court granted cert in Snyder. The case is getting plenty of attention from the mainstream media, as well as some treatment on De Novo favorites SCOTUSblog, the Volokh Conspiracy (which had roughly a bajillion posts about the case yesterday), and Above the Law.

The Court will consider Snyder in the fall. This should be interesting. Stay tuned.
