DOJ silent on abortion protests at justices' homes despite federal law prohibiting 'pickets' to influence case
There have been no arrests of abortion activists despite federal law prohibiting protests with intent to influence a court case
By Kelly Laco | Fox News

The Department of Justice is remaining silent on continued protests by abortion activists outside conservative Supreme Court justices' homes, despite a federal law that makes it illegal to attempt to "influence" federal officials and  the outcome of a court case.

The pro-abortion protestors are targeting the private homes of the six Republican-appointed justices after the leak last week of a draft opinion signaled the Supreme Court intends to overturn landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade.

Federal U.S. code 1507, states that any individual who "pickets or parades" with the "intent of interfering with, obstructing, or impeding the administration of justice, or with the intent of influencing any judge, juror, witness, or court officer" near a U.S. court or "near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge, juror, witness, or court officer" will be fined, or "imprisoned not more than one year, or both."

Despite the language included in the federal statute, Attorney General Merrick Garland has not issued a public statement addressing the protests outside conservative justices' homes. And the Department of Justice (DOJ) did not respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment on Garland's silence and the reason why protestors have not been arrested.
