(FOX NEWS) – The Supreme Court’s final decision will not be affected by leaks, the chief justice says.
Chief Justice John Roberts called the leak of a drafted court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade “absolutely appalling” in a talk Thursday. The justice went on to dismiss any question that the leak would affect the Supreme Court’s final decision.
“A leak of this stature is absolutely appalling,” Roberts said. “If the person behind it thinks that it will affect our work, that’s just foolish.”
The chief justice made the remarks during his first public post-leak appearance.
Roberts was speaking in Atlanta at an annual meeting of lawyers and judges from the federal 11th Circuit, which includes Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.
