Certiorari Denial in 2005 Bumper Sticker Ejection Case
Over three dissents, the Supreme Court has denied cert. in a case involving the ejection of two people from a 2005 public event featuring George W. Bush. The ejection was apparently based solely on the subject matter of the bumper sticker on their car. The N.Y. Times has the story. The central legal issue in the case is whether the officials who ejected the two are entitled to qualified immunity on the ground that no "clearly established" principle of First Amendment law was violated.
