WASHINGTON, DC—Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon released the following statement in response to news about the Supreme Court’s investigation into the leak of the draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“The Court needs to immediately explain if this investigation included interviews of the justices or not. Given revelations about Justice Thomas and allegations against Justice Alito, they and their spouses should have been considered prime suspects in this leak. The idea that the justices themselves may have been excluded from the inquiry undermines the credibility of the whole undertaking. Ultimately, it looks like the Supreme Court may be more interested in protecting its own members than actually solving this whodunit.”
