WALLS CLOSE IN ON PHELPSES A federal judge in Maryland on Thursday ordered liens on the Westboro Baptist Church building and the Phelps-Chartered Law office. If the case presided over by U.S. District Court Judge Richard D. Bennett is upheld by an appeals court, the church, at 3701 S.W. 12th, and the office building, at 1414 S.W. Topeka Blvd., could be obtained by the court and sold, with the proceeds being applied toward $5 million in damages Bennett imposed on church members for picketing a military funeral. Mike Burley / The Capital-Journal Westboro Baptist Church could be sold to satisfy a $5 million court judgment. A lien has been ordered on it. Guess the walls come down on these hateful people. About time.
