Free Speech to be Tested in Coming Supreme Court Term

You can just feel the excitement in the air. The Supreme Court is back in business soon with one Justice Elena Kagan assuming her seat on the throne.

The court will begin right away with a doozy of an issue: free speech rights.

First up on Oct. 6 the justices will weigh whether the First Amendment protects a Kansas church’s campaign to publicize its beliefs by picketing military funerals with vulgar placards and insulting fallen soldiers’ survivors in online screeds.

Next month, the court will consider whether states can bar minors from buying violent videogames, on the theory that these games cause damage to developing minds.
