This past Monday, the website Politico published a leaked draft of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The Chief Justice verified the authenticity of the draft the following day, insisting that the draft is not final and promising an internal investigation into the identity of the leaker. Join Garrett Epps and Stuart Chinn, constitutional law professors at the University of Oregon School of Law, as they discuss their initial reactions to the draft opinion—and what it may mean for abortion rights in the United States—as well as their thoughts on the leak itself and the increasing politicization of the Court.
