Lee: SCOTUS should 'immediately' release final Dobbs v. Jackson opinion
The Blaze, May 3, 2022

Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) on Tuesday said the Supreme Court ought to immediately release its final decision on Mississippi's 15-week abortion ban after a draft opinion for the case that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to the media.


Lee told Beck that as a member of the legislative branch, it was not his place to tell another branch of government what to do. But he shared his opinion that the Supreme Court should issue the final decision on Dobbs "immediately."

"I still don't know who leaked this and what their motives are," Lee said. "Maybe they wanted to leak it so as to make it difficult for justices planning on signing it."

He suggested that the court could release an unsigned order announcing the result of the case with an opinion to follow, to dissuade future attempts to threaten, intimidate, or harass justices into changing how they vote on controversial cases.

"I think it would be good for the court to signal that this is done," Lee said.
