It’s been a long time since we heard from the Supreme Court about one major issue.
The court has made history this year. But Americans have been waiting for months over something that rocked our entire judicial system.
Now, Justice Neil Gorsuch is giving a critical update on the investigation into the Dobbs leaker.
From Fox News:
Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch said Thursday that he hopes the investigation into the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization draft opinion leak will be completed soon…
“The chief justice appointed an internal committee to oversee the investigation,” Gorsuch said. “That committee has been busy, and we’re looking forward to their report, I hope, soon.”
According to Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, the investigation into the leaker will be finished soon.
He revealed that the chief justice formed an “internal committee” to oversee the case. And Gorsuch is anticipating a report.
Many Americans were outraged when someone within the Supreme Court leaked a draft opinion on the Dobbs case.
Nothing like that has ever happened in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court. And many believed this person did it to trigger backlash against the court’s conservative majority.
For months, we witnessed abortion activists protesting outside justice’s homes (which is a violation of federal law).
Justices were even in danger of their lives on several occasions.
Americans have been upset that there has been no news on the leaker for months. Some legal experts demanded a federal investigation into the matter.
It is possible that what this leaker did was illegal. At the very least, they should be exposed and fired.
But time kept marching on and we learned nothing. A lack of resolution to this situation could only make things worse.
If this leaker isn’t reprimanded, then it could embolden other court staffers to do much the same.
Our entire judicial system would erode, as politically-motivated clerks undermined judges’ authority.
We can’t predict what this report will reveal, if and when it comes out. But we can say that Americans have high expectations.
