Summary

In recent days, protesters have held peaceful demonstrations outside the homes of multiple conservative Supreme Court justices following publication of a draft Supreme Court majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. In a statement Wednesday evening, a Justice Department spokesperson said Garland was continuing to be briefed on the “security matters related” to the justices and that he had directed the US Marshals Service to provide assistance to the separate police agency that provides security to the Supreme Court. The Republican governors of Maryland and Virginia, where several justices have their homes, pointed to the law in a Wednesday letter asking Garland to offer more federal resources to protect Supreme Court justices, as they urged him to enforce the federal statute that bans protesting meant to influence judicial actions. My focus will remain on acting to safeguard the rights of women in Fairfax County should this dangerous draft Supreme Court decision take effect, which is why I have pledged to never prosecute a woman for making her own healthcare decisions,” Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano said in a statement to CNN.
