NOW v. Scheidler court documentsToday in League HistoryJanuary 14, 1999—In defiant response to a federal court decision the previous year finding Joe Scheidler and the Pro-Life Action League guilty of “racketeering” in the NOW v. Scheidler lawsuit, the League prints buttons bearing the League’s logo and the words “Racketeers for Life.” The decision against Joe and the League would be reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2003, and the buttons would go on to be collector’s items.
