2 dozen protest outside Baltimore courthouse

Friday - 1/20/2012, 2:07pm  ET

BALTIMORE - About two dozen protesters are outside Baltimore's federal courthouse, rallying against a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision about campaign finance.

The protesters are carrying signs reading "Corporations are not people, Money is not speech," and "B-heard: Corporate money out of politics."

The protesters are drawing occasional honks from passing drivers.

The activists are part of a nationwide 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.
