SUPREME COURT SECRECY: It always

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:26 pm

SUPREME COURT SECRECY: It always seems like there are a million leaks from places like the White House and the Pentagon. Maybe these folks should take a cue from the Supreme Court. OK, sure, books like The Brethren have featured insider looks at the Court. But consider this: there are still ten decisions yet to be announced at the Court, including the Michigan affirmative action case and the homosexual sodomy case. But these cases have long since been decided — and even if you don’t count the Justices themselves, there are dozens of people who know not only the outcomes, but who voted which way. Yet this sort of thing never seems to be leaked. Not even the Bush v. Gore decision was leaked ahead of time. Given the significance of these cases, I think that’s pretty amazing.
