    FILE - In this Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2010 file picture, Westboro Baptist Church member Jacob Phelps of Topeka, Kan. holds signs in front of the Supreme Court in Washington as the court heard arguments in the dispute between Albert Snyder of York, Pa., and members of the Westboro Baptist Church. The case pits Snyder's right to grieve privately against the church members' right to say what they want, no matter how offensive. The American Civil Liberties Union's national gay rights project battles aggressively against anti-gay discrimination, but, as a longtime defender of free speech, the ACLU also is expected to intervene sometimes on behalf of anti-gay expression. The ACLU pressed a lawsuit on behalf of the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church, which has outraged mourning communities by picketing service members' funerals with crudely worded signs condemning homosexuality. The ACLU said the Missouri state law banning such picketing infringes on religious freedom and free speech. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

    Attorney Karen Tumlin, who is representing The American Civil Liberties Union against Arizona's controversial Senate Bill 1070 immigration, law speaks to reporters outside the U.S. District Court in Phoenix July 22, 2010. The ACLU filed suit against The State of Arizona and SB 1070. The SB1070 law, currently being challenged by the U.S. Department of Justice at the court to prevent it from going into effect on July 29, would make the failure to carry immigration documents a crime and give the police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.
