Secret Service Agents Can't Be Sued, Court Rules

June 05, 2012  | 

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against an anti-war protester who attempted to sue the Secret Service for what he said was a retaliatory arrest.

Steven Howards claimed his rights were violated during a 2006 visit to a mall in Beaver Creek, Colo., by then-Vice President Dick Cheney. Howards confronted Cheney and said the administration's "policies in Iraq are disgusting." He also touched Cheney on the shoulder.

Special Agent Virgil Reichle arrested Howards after he denied touching the vice president. Harassment charges were later dropped, reports the New York Times.

Brian, your an ass. Note the charges were dropped and it happened in 2006. Go do your liberal whinning somewhere else.
