US Senate Judiciary panel to review 2014 SCOTUS leak claim

Source: Axios

“Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) announced his panel is reviewing ‘serious allegations’ in a New York Times report Saturday that a 2014 Supreme Court ruling was leaked to a former anti-abortion activist weeks in advance. … Justice Samuel Alito, who wrote majority opinions in both the 2014 Hobby Lobby contraception and religious-liberty case and the leaked draft opinion of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, has said any suggestion that he or his wife disclosed the 2014 ruling early to anyone was ‘false.’ Former anti-abortion leader Rev. Rob Schenck told the NYT that Gayle Wright, a donor to the evangelical organization he then ran, informed him of the decision. However, Wright ‘denied obtaining or passing along any such information,’ the NYT reports.” (11/21/22)
