Wisconsin Reps. Tom Tiffany, Scott Fitzgerald Co-sponsor Bill to Make Leaks from SCOTUS a Federal Crime

“In response to the leaked Dobbs draft opinion, there has been widespread agreement on one thing – it is entirely unclear whether the leaker can face any legal liability.

It defines confidential information broadly to reach internal notes on cases, communications between justices on matters pending before the Court, draft opinions, final opinions before they are issued, and any other information the chief justice designates as confidential. This bill is a common-sense response to a horrible situation to ensure it never happens again.”
