Gene Schaerr at Winston & Strawn Today Reacted to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 8-1 Vote on Protesting at Military Funerals

“Although my client, The American Legion, and I are disappointed in the outcome of the decision, we’re grateful that the Court wrote its opinion with a full awareness of the recently enacted federal and state laws governing funeral protests, and in a manner that is unlikely to cast any doubt on the constitutionality of those laws,” said Gene Schaerr, firm-wide chair of Winston & Strawn LLP’s Appellate, Critical Motion & Constitution Litigation Practice.

“We’re also pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court recognized how offensive the protests at issue in this case were to the family and to all those who have served honorably in our Nation’s military,” Schaerr concluded.
