Supreme Court Justices Meet for 1st Time Since Draft Abortion Ruling Leak
The justices of the Supreme Court were to meet face-to-face on May 12 for a private conference on court business for the first time since the unauthorized publication of a draft majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade generated a firestorm of controversy.
The leaked draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, confirmed as authentic, suggests that a majority of the Supreme Court’s justices are prepared to undo Roe v. Wade, the seminal 1973 precedent that swept away state laws and made abortion legal across the country.
It’s unclear when the final version of the Dobbs opinion will be formally issued by the high court, which heard oral arguments in the case on Dec. 1, 2021.
