The group is demanding the U.S. reform its justice system.

"Anonymous" is believed to be a group of "hacktivist" who oppose attempts to limit internet freedoms.

A long threat note,YouTube video and a list of files named after supreme court justices were posted after the group took over the website.

The note expressed anger over the death of Aaron Swartz an internet activist.

Swartz was facing charges in a hacking case when he committed suicide.
