Thank goodness (this time) for SCOTUS... the Court ruled 8-1 to overturn the lower court ruling allowing RICO -- the law meant to fight organized crime's extortion -- to be used against anti-abortion protests.

You can read the syllabus, opinion, concurrence (by Ginsburg), and dissent (by Stevens) here (thanks to William Sulik for linking it... I hadn't been able to find the opinion until I saw his link).
