Marshals attempt to end protests outside of SCOTUS justices’ homes

Breitbart News reports that U.S. Supreme Court marshals are attempting to stop leftwing activists from “protesting” outside of the homes of the high court’s justices. 

The justices — particularly the conservative justices — have been targeted by pro-abortion activists ever since the leak of the court’s draft in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. That draft showed the court overturning the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. 

Since then, this draft has become a reality. And, pro-abortion activists have only ramped up their “protests” of conservative justices. These “protests” have seen activists gather outside of the justices’ homes.

It is this that Supreme Court marshals are now trying to put a stop to.

The laws

This week, U.S. Supreme Court Marshal Gail A. Curley wrote a letter to a number of Maryland officials, including Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD), urging them to “enforce laws that prohibit picketing outside of the homes of Supreme Court Justices who live in Maryland.”

Curley, in the letter, goes on to cite specific laws that outlaw this behavior. She, for example, writes, “Mayland law provides that ‘[a] person may not intentionally assemble with another in a manner that disrupts a person’s right to tranquility in the person’s home.”

Curley also cites a Montgomery County law that states that “[a] person or group of persons must not picket in front of or adjacent to any private residency.”

In both cases, Curley cites the penalties that are supposed to be handed out when these laws are violated.

“They should be enforced without delay”

In the next part of the letter, Curley highlights the current state of affairs giving example after example of how these so-called protests have continued outside of the homes of Supreme Court justices. She also calls to mind the attempted assassination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Then, Curley finished with a call to action.

“I would respectfully request that you direct the Maryland State Police to enforce Maryland and Montgomery County laws that squarely prohibit picketing at the homes of Supreme Court Justices who reside in Maryland,” she writes.

We’ll see if Curley’s letter has the intended effect.
