Justice Roberts Rips SCOTUS Leak and Effort to Undermine the Court – Opinion

There was speculation Monday night about whether the draft opinion of the SCOTUS regarding Roe v. Wade was true, but the weight of evidence indicated that it was.

It was Monday night. We were asked how Chief Justice John Roberts would respond and how he would reportedly call for an investigation.

It is now confirmed by the Court that this draft opinion has been approved. But they cautioned — as we have been saying — that it’s not a final opinion and that things can change between this draft and the final decision. Chief Justice Roberts is also up in arms about the leak and says they are going to do all they can to go after the leaker, noting that the purpose of this was to upset the work of the Court, and “it will not succeed.”


“To the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the Court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed. The work of the Court will not be affected in any way,” Roberts said.

“We at the Court are blessed to have a workforce – permanent employees and law clerks alike – intensely loyal to the institution and dedicated to the rule of law. Court employees have an exemplary and important tradition of respecting the confidentiality of the judicial process and upholding the trust of the Court,” he said. “This was a singular and egregious breach of that trust that is an affront to the Court and the community of public servants who work here.”

Roberts said he had directed the Marshal of the Court — its chief operations and security officer — to investigate.

Except for a hack or other unauthorized access, the opinions were only available to a small number of people. It is possible to locate the culprit. It is imperative that this matter be resolved quickly as it could jeopardize the integrity of the Court.
