Attorney General's Response to Eight Circuit Decision

Attorney General Doug Peterson: “I applaud the decision by the US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit affirming the constitutionality of Nebraska's funeral picketing law. This law strikes the appropriate balance between first amendment free speech rights and the rights of grieving families to bury their loved ones in peace.”
