Supreme Court police prepare for after ObamaCare ruling?
Court Public Information Officer Kathleen Arberg would not comment on how many threats the court received during oral arguments in the politically charged case, but said Supreme Court police are prepared to maintain security after the opinion is delivered.
She said the Supreme Court police are prepared to collaborate on security with Capitol Police and Metropolitan Police Departments if needed. Arberg noted that any individuals or groups planning on protesting in front of the court do not require a permit if they remain on the sidewalk and off the street or court steps.
Hundreds of supporters and critics of the healthcare law rallied in front of the Supreme Court during three days of oral arguments in March. Those protests were peaceful, but security remains a top priority for the court following a spate of recent attacks.
