Following the oral arguments in U.S. v. Eichman and [U.S. v.

Haggerty], attorneys, defendants, and members of

Congress talked with reporters about the cases. Both cases challenged the

constitutionality of a law passed last year by Congress which makes

argued that flag burning should be protected as an expression of free
