The Facts

US Supreme Court Marshal Gail Curley has penned a letter to MD officials asking them to enforce laws barring picketing outside the homes of Supreme Court justices residing in the state.
Abortion rights activists have been protesting outside the MD homes of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh since May following the leak of a draft opinion indicating that the court would soon overturn Roe v. Wade. The Supreme Court then overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2022.
Curley’s letter read, “I am writing to request that the Maryland State Police, in conjunction with local authorities as appropriate, enforce laws prohibiting picketing outside the homes of Supreme Court justices who live in Maryland.”
Curley added that “threatening activity” and protests outside the justices’ homes had increased (since May).
Activists are also reportedly picketing outside the VA home of Justice Samuel Alito Jr.
