The United States Supreme Court announced in an investigative report on Thursday that it has not yet found the leaker of the draft opinion indicating that Roe v. Wade would be overturned.
Authorities investigating the leak have, to date, “been unable to identify a person responsible by a preponderance of the evidence,” the report says.
“In May 2022, this Court suffered one of the worst breaches of trust in its history: the leak of a draft opinion,” the report states. “The leak was no mere misguided attempt at protest. It was a grave assault on the judicial process. To meet our obligations as judges, we accept submissions from parties and
amici, we engage advocates at oral argument, and we publish explanations of our final decisions. All of this we do in the open.”
“Along the way, though, it is essential that we deliberate with one another candidly and in confidence,” the report continues. “That phase of the judicial process affords us an opportunity to hone initial thoughts, reconsider views, persuade one another, and work collaboratively to strengthen our collective judgment.”
The Supreme Court Mashal reports that “[i]nvestigators continue to review and process some electronic data that has been collected and a few other inquiries remain pending,” noting that “to the extent that additional investigation yields new evidence or leads, the investigators will pursue them.”
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
