"The 'Occupy' movement has occupied a lot of places. It has occupied Wall Street. It has occupied D.C. (OK, McPherson Square in D.C.). It has occupied bits of public space in Oakland, Calif.; San Francisco; Baltimore; and too many other locales to list here. But one place they’re unlikely to occupy, at least for very long, is the plaza in front of the US Supreme Court. It may seem ironic, but it’s true: Protests and demonstrations are banned by federal law on the grounds of the very institution that oversees the First Amendment. It’s right there in Title 40, Subtitle II, Part C, Chapter 61, Subchapter IV, Section 6135 of the US Code." (11/03/11)
