But the court's unanimous ruling did little more than resolve this particular case.<p>The decision stems from an incident in 2006 in the Colorado resort town of Beaver Creek, where Cheney was shaking hands at a shopping mall. Steven Howards got in line and when his turn came, he told the vice president that the Bush administration's Iraq policies were "disgusting."<p>Accounts differ as to what happened next.
