Phelps faces lawsuit

According to MSNBC, Fred Phelps is facing a lawsuit for invasion of a private funeral.

Admittedly, I'm not a big fan of Phelps and his gang, but nor do I think that anyone's right to free speech should be abridged.

That being said, we also have a right not to have our privacy abridged. Thus, I'm glad to see this lawsuit. While I don't like Phelps, this is more the method I'd prefer to see taken. Using the legal system properly to punish people like Phelps that harass others, instead of shredding the constitution in order to hide the problem.
