Whistleblower Schenck Must Be Called To Testify

WASHINGTON, DC— Following reports that the outcome and author of the Supreme Court’s 2014 Hobby Lobby case were apparently leaked by Justice Samuel Alito at a private dinner with wealthy political donors, Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon issued the following statement: 

“The Senate Judiciary Committee should immediately move to investigate the apparent leak by Justice Alito. The whistleblower in this report, Rev. Rob Schenck, should be called to testify about both the leak and the yearslong lobbying effort he once led to cultivate Alito and other Republican justices. 

“This bombshell report is the latest proof that the Republican justices on the Court are little more than politicians in robes. It’s no wonder trust in the Court has hit a record low. Structural reform of the Court, including strict new ethics rules, is needed now more than ever.”
