Justices of the United States Supreme Court have been on high alert since the extraordinary leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion during the court’s deliberations on Roe v. Wade. The disclosure spurred widespread protests, attacks on scores of pro-life and faith-based organizations, and even an assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. According to Justice Alito, the revelation rendered the justices “targets for assassination.” “It was a shock because nothing like that had happened in the past,” Alito said of the leak in October. “So it certainly changed the atmosphere at the court for the remainder of last term.”
“The leak also made those of us who were thought to be in the majority, in support of overruling Roe and Casey, targets for assassination because it gave people a rational reason to think they could prevent that from happening by killing one of us,” he added during remarks at The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)
The uproar even resulted in an assassination attempt on Kavanaugh. Nicholas John Roske, 26, allegedly traveled from California to Maryland and arrived in Kavanaugh’s neighborhood early on June 8th. He had a knife, a revolver, ammunition, zip ties, pepper spray, duct tape, and other stuff with him. According to Fox News, he allegedly informed authorities that he intended to use the goods to kill the Supreme Court justice. Roske allegedly told police that he was furious over the leaked draft decision on Roe v. Wade and that he feared the court would relax gun rules in the aftermath of the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. Roske was apprehended by US Marshals after calling 911 and admitting his intention to kill Kavanaugh.
On the 50th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court judgment Roe v. Wade, demonstrators chose to harass justices near their residences once more.
Protests outside the justices’ houses and threats to the justices themselves prompted extensive security to be implemented around the SCOTUS, which was another unusual measure. Despite increased security, protesters have returned. According to the Daily Signal, leftist protestors demonstrated undisturbed near the residence of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday evening.
Protesters gathered on the sidewalk in front of Kavanaugh’s Chevy Chase, Maryland, house. The march seems to have been coordinated by the far-left organization Our Rights DC. According to Fox News, the group posted a banner encouraging supporters to march in the neighborhoods of Justice Kavanaugh and Chief Justice John Roberts.
Icy rain poured down on the posh Maryland neighborhood as approximately 20 people marched up and down the sidewalk in front of Kavanaugh’s house, according to the Daily Signal. Protesters marched with rainbow umbrellas emblazoned with pro-abortion slogans, yelling and singing, “cut his time short, a rapist should not rule the court,” “freedom of religion means freedom from yours,” and “no privacy for us, no peace for you.”

Daily Signal was on site:
A number of U.S. Marshals, who protect the federal courts, were stationed just above the sidewalk on Kavanaugh’s property. The singing and chanting activists processed by the authorities using the sidewalk. The Daily Signal asked the Marshals why they allowed the protesters to continue their demonstrations when 18 U.S. Code § 1507 forbids picketing or parading “in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer” (both Maryland and Virginia law also prohibit picketing to disrupt or threaten to disrupt that individual’s “tranquility in his home”).
