Judicial Watch is representing Robert L. Rosebrock, a Vietnam-era veteran who faces federal criminal charges for displaying two four by six inch American flags outside a Veterans Affairs fence on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016. You can view our press release here to learn more about the court case.
“Now that the court has seen fit to dismiss the dubious photography charges against Mr. Rosebrock, we hope that it will follow suit and acquit him of the vindictive flag-hanging charge as well,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And we still hold out hope that Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice will halt this absurd prosecution. No public good can be served by prosecuting a 75-year-old veteran over posting the American Flag at the entrance to a park honoring veterans on Memorial Day.”
