On May 27, 2014, the Supreme Court of the United States decided Wood v. Moss. The case, which involved protesters of President Bush, was decided unanimously that Secret Service agents are entitled to qualified immunity when there is a security issue.
Professor Steven Heyman of IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law explains the decision in full, answering such questions as...
-What is qualified immunity? How does it apply in this case? -Why did the protesters claim viewpoint discrimination? And why did the Justices disagree? -Was this ruling about First Amendment free speech rights, or something else?
