The Supreme Court is seen after a dusting of snow in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 25.
WASHINGTON - Cameras aren't permitted during Supreme Court arguments, but a protest group's violation of that policy has court officials reviewing their screening procedures.
The customarily staid court was shaken this week when a protester on Wednesday shouted his opposition to the justices' past - and potentially future - decisions easing restrictions on political contributions.
Then on Thursday, the protest group 99Rise posted video of the proceeding from a small camera that had been infiltrated into the courtroom. Also included was video that appeared to be from October's oral argument in a campaign finance case that's yet to be decided.
The protester, identified as Noah "Kai" Newkirk of Los Angeles, was arrested and charged with violating Title 40, section 6134 of the U.S. Code, which prohibits making "a harangue or oration, or utter(ing) loud, threatening or abusive language in the Supreme Court building."
Visitors to the court go through two security checkpoints, and cameras - along with all forms of electronic equipment, including cellphones - are not permitted.
Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said officials are reviewing the video as well as courtroom screening procedures.
