Court throws out expansion of Pa.'s hate crimes law

 A state court Thursday threw out language that expanded Pennsylvania's hate crimes law to include crimes committed on the basis of the victim's sexual orientation and physical disabilities, ruling the legislative process that led to is passage was unconstitutional.

Commonwealth Court's 5-1 ruling handed a victory to a conservative Christian group called Repent America, which filed a lawsuit in 2005 challenging the amendment of the state hate-crimes law in 2002.
