The U.S. Supreme Court issued a statement on Thursday regarding the leaked opinion that indicated the court was set to overturn Roe v. Wade.
The court said they have not been able to determine who leaked a draft of Justice Samuel Alito’s opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Although investigators will continue to review evidence, there’s a possibility the individual responsible for the leak may never be found.
The court said the leak was “a grave assault on the judicial process” in the statement.
BREAKING: The Supreme Court says it has been unable to identify “by a preponderance of the evidence” who leaked the Dobbs opinion last year.
