Only if they live within his jurisdiction.  If they don't, Cardinal Wuerl has no power to excommunicate them. 

The Washington Archdiocese comprises the City of Washington, D.C., and several counties in Maryland.  If the justices live across the river in Virginia, they are outside Cardinal Wuerl's jurisdiction, as he would not be their ordinary.

Of course, he could prohibit them from receiving Holy Communion anywhere in his archdiocese, but the likelihood of that is absolutely nil.
