    NEW YORK (AP) — New York City activists protesting a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision about campaign finance will move their rally up the street in order to comply with a judge's ruling that they can't protest in front of a federal courthouse.

    Activists plan to "occupy" courthouses in more than 100 cities on Friday to protest a 2010 Supreme Court ruling that removed most limits on corporate and labor spending in federal elections.

    "How does one NOT have a right to protest in front of a courthouse?"

    People don't really understand Citizens United.

    If they did, they're know, for example, that the case was NOT about CAMPAIGN finance.
