SCOTUS probe fails to find who leaked abortion ruling

Source: CNBC

“An investigation into the leak of a bombshell Supreme Court ruling overturning the federal right to abortion — weeks before it was officially released — failed to identify the culprit, the court said Thursday. The inconclusive end to the probe was another embarrassment for the Supreme Court, which called the leak ‘one of the worst betrayals of trust in its history’ and ‘a grave assault on the judicial process.’ Investigators interviewed nearly 100 court employees in the probe, 82 of whom had access to electronic or hard copies of the draft majority opinion by conservative Justice Samuel Alito. But neither Alito nor the court’s other eight justices were eyed in the investigation, according to an official report.” (01/19/23)
