It's been nearly three months since the shocking leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion in the Dobbs case showed a majority of justices voting to uphold Mississippi's pro-life protections and overturn Roe v. Wade. Still, details on the Court's investigation — launched by Chief Justice John Roberts and led by the Supreme Court Marshal Gail A. Curley — have been slim to none.
But legal eagle Shannon Bream and her team have continued digging to get information about what, if any progress is being made in the investigation. While the Court won't officially comment, Bream cited "multiple sources" at SCOTUS "the investigation was narrowed down from roughly 70 or so people at the Court who could have had access to that leaked opinion now to a smaller group."
That, finally, sounds like some progress. Earlier updates from the Court only reported that clerks — a group thought most likely to include the leaker due to their access to and work on draft opinions — had been asked to turn over their cell phones and sign affidavits as part of Marshal Curley's investigation. Bream also reported that the marshal's investigation saw permanent Court staff — who may have had access to the draft opinion — asked to turn over their cell phones as well.
