Man Sues over Arrest for Wearing "Occupy" Jacket at Supreme Court

First Amendment apparently does not apply there?

Fitzgerald Scott was viewing exhibits inside the U.S. Supreme Court last year when a police officer confronted him and demanded he remove his jacket.

Painted on the jacket were these words: "Occupy Everywhere." The deputy chief of the Supreme Court Police, Timothy Dolan, told Scott to take off the jacket or leave the building. Scott, according to Dolan, was violating the law that restricts expression inside the high court: no signs and no demonstrations.
