Washington (AP) — Marshal Maryland, US Supreme Court He urged authorities to step up enforcement of the law she says would ban picketing outside the homes of judges living in the state.

"For weeks, a large number of protesters chanting slogans, using loudspeakers, and drumming picketed the house of justice," Marshal Gale Curly said of the Republican Party. I wrote in a letter to Governor Larry. Hogan and Montgomery County executive Marc Elrich dated Friday.

Curly writes that both Maryland and Montgomery County laws "prohibit picketing head-on" at judges' homes and ask police to "enforce" those provisions. Asked the authorities to instruct.

From the time the judge's draft opinion was leaked in May, suggesting that he was ready to overturn the groundbreaking 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion. The house is the subject of protest.

Protests and intimidation have "increased since May," Curly wrote, and has continued since a court ruling overturning the Roe v. Wade case last week.

"For example, earlier this week, 75 protesters loudly picketed at a judge's house in Montgomery County for 20-30 minutes in the evening before another judge. I picketed at my house for 30 minutes. The crowd grew to 100 and eventually returned to the first house of justice and picked up for another 20 minutes, "Kali wrote in a letter to Elrich. "This is exactly the kind of act prohibited by Maryland and Montgomery County law."

Curly's request is that a California man plans to kill a judge by police. It was issued about a month after being discovered with guns, knives, and pepper spray near Brett Kavanaugh's house in the Maryland Supreme Court after telling him that it was. Nicholas John Roske, 26, a man in Simi Valley, California, was charged with attempting to kill the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

Supreme Court judges in Virginia are also subject to protest. Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin demanded a security border around the judge's house in Fairfax County in May, but local authorities rejected the request. He also sought to create new felony penalties for certain actions during demonstrations against judges or other court officers rejected by state legislators.

A Supreme Court spokesman provided reporters with a copy of Curly's letter on Saturday morning.

A spokesman for the Montgomery County Police introduced a request for comment to an Elrich spokesman. The spokesman did not immediately answer the Associated Press inquiry.

Hogan's spokesperson also did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
