Boston transit: “Upskirt” photos protected speech?

Think a guy who takes photos up women’s skirts on the train is a disgusting pervert who deserves to be arrested? Not so, according to a Boston area defense lawyer.

In what has to be the most mind-blowing legal argument ever, the attorney for an Andover, Massachusetts, man recently argued in court that up-the-skirt photos her client took on the Green Line of Boston’s MBTA should be protected by the First Amendment. She also said that passengers on public transit should have no expectation of privacy under the state’s Peeping Tom law.

Kind of gives new meaning to the term “look out below,” doesn’t it?
