"The US Supreme Court agreed on Monday to examine whether two Secret Service agents can be sued for [abducting] a Colorado man who criticized US policy in Iraq during a public appearance by Vice President Dick Cheney at a shopping center in 2006. Secret Service agents [abducted] the man, Steven Howards, in part because they did not like what he said to Mr. Cheney. They later justified the arrest by claiming Mr. Howards lied to them about whether he 'touched” the vice president during the brief encounter." (12/05/11)
