our state is safe (for NOW that is)

(i didn't post on the supreme court ruling yesterday on this blog or my other one ravings of a semi-sane madwoman on purpose. i would have started foaming at the mouth and i've done that far too much of late)

Connecticut not affected by protester ruling
(Hartford-AP, Feb. 28, 2006 12:26 PM) _ A lawyer for two Connecticut abortion clinics says a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on protests will have no effect in the state.
Jon Schoenhorn says today's ruling will not affect a permanent federal injunction issued in 1995 against Operation Rescue.
Schoenhorn is attorney for the Summit Women's Center which operates abortion clinics in Bridgeport and Hartford.
Schoenhorn says the injunction, which stems from a separate case, was based on racketeering and state claims such as trespassing.
Today, anti-abortion groups e won a victory at the U.S. Supreme Court. All eight justices who participated say federal extortion and racketeering laws can't be used to ban abortion protests.
