    Default Another Supreme Court Breach

    While the alleged breach took place in 2014, this is a breaking news story from the New York Times, which spent weeks investigating the minister's claim. What I don't get is why the minister would blow the whistle on Alito. And whatever happened to their investigation of the 2022 Dobbs decision breach?

    Former Anti-Abortion Leader Alleges Another Supreme Court Breach

    As the Supreme Court investigates the extraordinary leak this spring of a draft opinion of the decision overturning Roe v. Wade, a former anti-abortion leader has come forward claiming that another breach occurred in a 2014 landmark case involving contraception and religious rights.

    In a letter to Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and in interviews with The New York Times, the Rev. Rob Schenck said he was told the outcome of the 2014 case weeks before it was announced. He used that information to prepare a public relations push, records show, and he said that at the last minute he tipped off the president of Hobby Lobby, the craft store chain owned by Christian evangelicals that was the winning party in the case.

    Both court decisions were triumphs for conservatives and the religious right. Both majority opinions were written by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. But the leak of the draft opinion overturning the constitutional right to abortion was disclosed in the news media by Politico, setting off a national uproar. With Hobby Lobby, according to Mr. Schenck, the outcome was shared with only a handful of advocates.

    Would Alito have given him permission to publish?

    That's what I was wondering too. And why would Alito (or his wife) leak that info about decisions that evangelicals were interested in but not others?

    Maybe this explains why the Dobbs leak was never really investigated.

    Yes...which explains why the Republicans want to investigate Hunter instead.

    Good point. If not know, then at least have his suspicions it was Alito, hence the silence on who revealed it.

    I think the point is that the leak in 2014 is probably the same leak from last summer. Namely, Alito. It would explain why the Republicans and SCOTUS aren't working to find the leak.


    BTW, have you ever lost friends in the service? Accidents, both in the line of duty or off-duty?
