The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Wood v. Moss. The case involved pleas by two Secret Service agents for “qualified immunity” from a lawsuit claiming that the agents put demonstrators protesting presidential policies at a disadvantage because of their political views. Qualified immunity protects government officials from liability for the violation of individuals' constitutional rights. The protestors had been forced to move away from an Oregon hotel where President George W. Bush was dining in 2004. The anti-Bush demonstrators said the agents violated their Free Speech rights and discriminated against their viewpoint by forcing them to move while pro-Bush supporters were allowed to stay.
