Justice Alito, the majority author of the Hobby Lobby decision is said to have leaked the Hobby Lobby decision and now may be responsible for leaking the Court’s decision on the overturning of Roe v Wade. Why the Leaks? Was he courting Political favor? Why? Justice Alito sits on the highest Court in our land, why curry favor with anyone?
The Senate judiciary committee should immediately move to investigate the apparent leak by Justice Alito,” said Brian Fallon, the executive director of Demand Justice.
“This bombshell report is the latest proof that the Republican justices on the court are little more than politicians in robes. It’s no wonder trust in the court has hit a record low. Structural reform of the court, including strict new ethics rules, is needed now more than ever.”
Fallon added that Schenck “should be called to testify about both the leak and the years-long lobbying effort he once led to cultivate Alito and other Republican justices”.
Claims of the judicial leak, potentially for political purposes, comes six months after a draft opinion of the Dobbs decision overturning the nationwide abortion rights established by the 1972 case Roe v Wade was leaked ahead of its June publication.
