WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh being forced to duck out the rear door of a Morton’s Steakhouse in Washington D.C. on July 6 while a crowd decrying the overturning of Roe v. Wade angrily protested out front, reports indicate that abortion-rights activists have been offering cash rewards for SCOTUS sightings, which reportedly is how they learned where and when Kavanaugh was dining that evening.
ShutDownDC recently issued a tweet that it would pay up to $200 cash to restaurant workers if they inform them that any of the six justices who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade were eating at their establishment. ShutDownDC was the group that organized the Kavanaugh protest at Morton’s last week, going off of a tip they received by another activist group called Ruthsentus.com; upon receiving the tip, protestors began gathering outside of the restaurant just 35 minutes later.
In addition, reports say that other restaurants and entertainment venues in the D.C. area are bracing for similar backlash if one of the SCOTUS members behind the decision decide to visit their establishments.

Since the incident at the D.C. Morton’s – and following a rep from the swanky restaurant proclaiming that Kavanaugh had a “right” to eat dinner in peace – the steakhouse has reportedly been flooded with negative online reviews, in addition to countless callers tying up their phone lines and pranksters placing numerous fake dinner reservations.
Following the ruling by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade in June – sending abortion legislation back to the states – protestors have engaged in harassment of the conservative justices behind that decision, often gathering outside their personal homes while holding signs and chanting slogans.
Pressure has been mounting upon the U.S. Department of Justice to intervene in the ongoing “harassment” of conservative Supreme Court Justices at their homes and when out on the town – especially with the latest news of “bounties” being placed on their heads – with some claiming that the actions of some protestors are in violation of “clear federal law.”
“Unfortunately, despite clear evidence that federal law was violated by mobs of protesters at the Justices’ homes, the head of the Department of Justice, and chief law enforcement officer of the United States, flatly refused to enforce federal law,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) recently wrote in regards to Attorney General Merrick Garland.
The federal law being referenced by Cruz is 18 U.S. Code §1507, a statute that says it is illegal to try to “influence” a justice, judge, or juror by demonstrating outside the person’s residence.
