Supreme Court Doings

The Supreme Court today is hearing Virginia v. Black, an important free speech case. A Virginia law prohibiting crossburnings is being challenged.

Here’s an important and on-point Supreme Court decision from 1992: R.A.V. v. St. Paul (written by the next chief justice, Antonin Scalia). Unless the Court is now willing to undo R.A.V., this looks like a win for free speech.
