The Samuel Alito Leak Allegations Put the Supreme Court's Accountability Problem on Full Display

  The Samuel Alito Leak Allegations Put the Supreme Court's Accountability Problem on Full Display Democrats are calling for an inquiry into a report that the conservative justice had previously leaked a major decision to antiabortion activists, which he denies.Top Democrats are calling for an inquiry into explosive allegations that an earlier Supreme Court decision authored by Samuel Alito was leaked—seemingly by the conservative justice himself. “The first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem,” Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse wrote on Saturday. “At SCOTUS, the problems run deep.

The global law firm Hogan Lovells fired a retired equity partner after she spoke positively about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in a conference call with other female employees, some of whom expressed anger at her, she wrote in a Tuesday Wall Street Journal opinion piece.

Trump Bragged ‘the Evangelicals’ Would ‘Never’ Leave Him. Then the Defections Began

  Trump Bragged ‘the Evangelicals’ Would ‘Never’ Leave Him. Then the Defections Began Trump thought his work to overturn Roe v. Wade had won the religious right's support in perpetuity. But with his 2024 run underway, movement leaders are staying on the sidelines He was warned, at times, that there were signs some conservative faith leaders were open to exploring other, non-Trump 2024 candidacies. The former president, for his part, was mostly incredulous, at least on the surface. Trump, according to these sources, would boast that those voters — as well as their pastors, professional activists, and grassroots honchos — would “never” dump Trump. Never.

Every other speaker on the company call in June, which had been dubbed a “safe space” for women to talk about the decision, decried the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson ruling that month, attorney Robin Keller alleged. Keller said she received “immediate” outrage after she pointed out that many jurists and commentators argued Roe v. Wade had been incorrectly decided, opined that sending the abortion issue to states was right and “referred to numerous reports of disproportionately high rates of abortion in the black community, which some have called a form of genocide,” calling this “tragic.”

“The next speaker called me a racist and demanded that I leave the meeting,” Keller wrote. “Other participants said they “lost their ability to breathe” on hearing my comments.”

Hogan Lovells ranked 12th in revenue among the 200 largest law firms worldwide earlier this year, according to Law.com. The company was created through the merger of the Hogan & Hartson and Lovells firms in 2010 and has offices in many countries.

Keller was still actively serving with clients when the conference call occurred, but Hogan Lovells’ quickly blocked her from contacting them, evicted her from email and document systems and notified its entire U.S. staff that a forum participant was suspended pending further investigation for “anti-Black comments,” she claimed, according to the piece. The firm allegedly issued a statement lamenting her opinions’ effect on forum participants that was published on the website Above the Law, and a source within the firm revealed her name to the media.

What rights does the Respect for Marriage Act protect?

  What rights does the Respect for Marriage Act protect? The Respect for Marriage Act as passed does not codify Obergefell. Here's what it does do.Getting federal protection on the books gained further prioritization after the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier this year. While abortion rights under Roe were considered by many to be settled via precedent, the overturn decision (Dobbs V. Jackson's Women's Health Organization) added fuel to codify Obergefell - in addition to Justice Clarence Thomas calling Obergefell "demonstrably erroneous" in his Dobbs opinion.

A different firm that Hogan Lovells employed to investigate reportedly decided that Keller had violated the company’s anti-harassment policy by citing comments about black abortion rates being “genocide,” Keller said. She had already filed a complaint with Hogan Lovells’ general counsel’s office accusing the firm and the people who attacked her on the call of breaking the policy “by publicly labeling me a racist.”

“My complaint was dismissed, my contracts with the firm were terminated, and other firms, wary of the publicity, blackballed me—all after an unblemished 44-year career,” Keller wrote, calling the response of those on the call who were vehemently against the Dobbs decision “unsurprising.” “Several women on the call—as well as male lawyers at the firm—contacted me later to offer private support for my right to express my views.”

Hogan Lovells did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
