BREAKING: Supreme Court Evacuated

BREAKING- Supreme Court Evacuated

Suspicious packages were found outside the court the same day major LGBTQ cases will be heard.

True

The U.S. Supreme Court was evacuated after two suspicious packages were found on the street. The action comes the same day arguments are set to begin on landmark cases involving anti-LGBTQ discrimination.

A number of roads were closed around the historic building following the discovery of the packages, which were left at an intersection between the court, the Capitol and the Library of Congress, according to the Associated Press.

Large crowds gathered outside the court to protest for and against LGBTQ workforce protections were cleared by police. The court is still set to hold its first hearings this morning on a case brought by Gerald Bostock, who was fired as a child welfare services coordinator at the Juvenile Court of Clayton County, Ga., after he joined a gay softball league.

That's one of multiple cases the court will hear today connected to LGBTQ rights.
