Yahoo! News - Two Sue Feds Over Anti-Bush T-Shirt Arrest 

I barely remember hearing about this particular incident when it happenned, but I'm glad they are following through with a lawsuit.

"A couple arrested for wearing anti-Bush T-shirts to a July 4 presidential appearance filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday alleging their First Amendment rights were violated.

Nicole and Jeff Rank were removed from the event at the West Virginia Capitol in handcuffs after revealing T-shirts with President Bush (news - web sites)'s name crossed out on the front. Nicole Rank's shirt had the words "Love America, Hate Bush" on the back and Jeff Rank's said "Regime change starts at home."

The SS were in on the arrest and are also named in the lawsuit.

"Nicole Rank, 30, initially was dismissed from her job with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (news - web sites), but was rehired after the charges were dropped. "

Liberty at work. No pun intended.
