Report: Supreme Court Building Surrounded By Barricades After Roe V Wade Draft Opinion Leaked!

Officers put up security barriers around the U.S. Supreme Court building after a draft opinion that was said to overturn Roe vs. Wade was leaked to the press.

POLITICO’s Josh Gerstein and Alexander Ward broke the news Monday night, including a copy of what they called a “initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO.” They also included a copy of what they called a “initial draft majority opinion.”

Take a vote after hearing oral arguments in a case. Chief Justice John Roberts then assigns the writing of the majority opinion to one of the justices on that side, and that person is the one who writes it. Draft opinions written by a judge are then sent to the other eight justices for them to read and for anyone who wants to write their own concurring or dissenting opinions.

People sometimes change their votes after reading all of the draft opinions. Before they finish writing and agree their votes are final, the majority opinion and all of the concurrences and dissenters are made public.

Leaks about anything that has to do with the inner workings of the country’s highest court are very, very rare. Because this was such a hot-button issue, security concerns arose right away when a draft of the Court’s opinion was leaked.

Dobbs vs. Mississippi Department of Health is the name of the case. It’s about a law in Mississippi that bans most abortions after 15 weeks.

People started reading the POLITICO article at around 8:30pm EDT. Shortly after, it was reported that police had put up barricades around the Supreme Court building, including this picture tweeted by Washington Examiner reporter Cami Mondeaux.

It was later tweeted by a journalist named Gabe Fleisher that there were two police officers and a group of about 50 people at the scene. Barricades were put up “by order of the Supreme Court Marshal,” police told him. He also said that a police officer said the barricades were put up on Monday night.
