Kansas Church Loses Legal Battle Concerning Protests at Funerals

Updated:

    A Kansas-based church has lost its legal battle to protest at funerals in Nebraska.
    A Nebraska law enacted in 2006 prohibits protests near a cemetery, mortuary or church from one hour before the beginning of a funeral to two hours after.
    Members of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church challenged the law but have lost in lower courts.
    The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday it would not take up the case.  As a result, the Nebraska law stands.
     Members of the Westboro Baptist Church routinely conduct anti-gay protests outside military funerals.
