Let’s start with real anger and end with honest hope. Many people feel alarmed about the leak of the entire draft Supreme Court decision that must not be allowed to dissipate as time goes on. Such a thing has never happened. Justice Samuel Alito’s preliminary opinion that came from the court, without permission or authority, and brought to the press was an act of vandalism by a vandal. It hardly matters whether the leaker is left or right. It reflects the same spirit as the January 6 Capitol riots — irresponsible vandalism. Since the book was thrown at the rioters, it should be thrown at the leaker.
Judges can’t sit around and say oh no, we’re just another victim of the times. If they have to break some teacups to find who did it, break them. Chief Justice John Roberts worried, rather, about the position of the court. This is the biggest threat to it since he joined. It might at least be good if the judges issued a joint statement that they were appalled by the announcement of the decision, did not accept it, would not support it.
