US Supreme Court agrees to hear military protester case

June 3, 2013 16:41

WASHINGTON - The US Supreme Court on Monday agreed to consider whether a protester who was barred from a military base in California violated a federal law when he took part in demonstrations on a public roadway that crosses government-owned land.

The US government asked the justices to overturn a lower court ruling in favor of the protester, John Apel. He successfully argued in an appeals court that the law, which prevents people from re-entering bases after they are barred, applies only to land over which the military has exclusive authority.
