From the Inquirer:

Police and Secret Service handling of anti-Bush and anti-war demonstrators at the president’s appearance in Philadelphia today resulted in lawyers for the American Civil Liberties Union filing an emergency complaint in federal court.

The complaint on behalf of ACORN – Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — by ACLU legal director Stefan Presser contended authorities violated not just the demonstrators’ Constitutional right of free speech but a 1988 permanent court order resulting from federal and local authorities’ handling of demonstrators during the 1987 Constitution bicentennial celebration…

A few of us were there as legal observers this morning, and the wave Bush gave to the protesters as he drove by was…well, regal.
