The U.S. Supreme Court released a statement Thursday afternoon announcing that investigators could not determine who was behind the leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization last year.
“In May 2022, this Court suffered one of the worst breaches of trust in its history: the leak of a draft opinion,” an unsigned statement from the Supreme Court Justices said. “The leak was no mere misguided attempt at protest. It was a grave assault on the judicial process.”
“The Chief Justice assigned the task to the Marshal of the Supreme Court and her staff,” the statement continued. “After months of diligent analysis of forensic evidence and interviews of almost 100 employees, the Marshal’s team determined that no further investigation was warranted
