Albert Snyder of York, Pa., the father of a Marine killed in Iraq, is asking the Supreme Court to reinstate a $5 million verdict against members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., led by the Rev. Fred Phelps, who picketed his son's funeral with signs like "Thank God for Dead Soldiers" and "God Hates the USA." The U.S. Supreme Court is hearing arguments Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2010 in the dispute between Snyder and members of the Westboro Baptist Church.
