Alito lawyer: He didn’t do it

The lawyer for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito sent a letter Monday night to two Democratic members of Congress who stated Congress would open a probe into ethics and leaks at the Supreme Court if the Court didn’t do it themselves, claiming Alito had nothing to do with a reported leak of a Supreme Court decision in 2014.

Alito was accused by a minister of providing information relating to a case involving retailer Hobby Lobby’s desire to not pay for birth control pills, claiming the store had a Constitutional right to practice its religion freely.  (Hobby Lobby’s specific denomination and the name of the parish it attends are unavailable.)  Rev. Rob Schenck wrote a letter to Chief Justice John Roberts last week informing him that a benefactor of Schenck’s had been told the outcome of the case at a dinner party at Alito’s house prior to the decision’s release.  The Court ultimately found in Hobby Lobby’s favor in a controversial decision.

“Justice Alito has said that neither he nor Mrs. Alito told the Wrights about the outcome of the decision in the Hobby Lobby case, or about the authorship of the opinion of the Court,” Alito’s attorney wrote to Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson.  “Gail Wright has denied Mr. Schenck’s allegation in multiple interviews, saying the account given by Mr. Schenck was ‘patently not true.'”

Scrutiny of the Court has increased after the leak of another controversial decision, the draft Dobbs decision that revoked individual body autonomy.  Also, Justice Clarence Thomas continues to rack up the scandals by not recusing himself from cases relating to the January 6th attempt to undermine the Constitution, of which his wife was a part.
