Supreme Court Leaves Nine Stones Unturned
Manage episode 353486289 series 87928
The Supreme Court's inquiry into the source of the leak of its draft opinion in Dobbs failed to find the culprit among the clerks and permanent staff.

Meanwhile, an attorney caught billing hundreds of hours for document review he didn't do earns a suspension, and Goodwin Procter makes heads spin as its layoffs are immediately followed with a major lateral move.
