SNYDER v. PHELPS
ALITO, J., dissenting
Respondents’ outrageous conduct caused petitioner great injury, and the Court now compounds that injury by depriving petitioner of a judgment that acknowledges the wrong he suffered.
In order to have a society in which public issues can be openly and vigorously debated, it is not necessary to allow the brutalization of innocent victims like petitioner. I therefore respectfully dissent.
the judgment on the claim of civil conspiracy can survive in light of theultimate disposition of the IIED and intrusion upon seclusion claims.
