The Closure of the Supreme Court

Gerard N. Magliocca

The Supreme Court is still closed to the public due to the pandemic. This is in sharp contrast to the other major public institutions in Washington D.C. The Capitol is open to visitors. The White House is open to tours. The Smithsonian is open, the Library of Congress is open, and the national monuments are open. So what's going on? Maybe the Court is simply getting more cautious advice from medical experts. Or maybe they have an imminent plan to reopen.

Unfortunately, it's hard to avoid the conclusion that the real reason for the Court's continued closure is to prevent protesters from expressing their views inside the building. Free speech for thee but not for me.
