SCOTUS Asks For Increased Funding For Police Protection

  • In May 2022, POLITICO released a leaked draft opinion for Dobbs v. Jackson that indicated SCOTUS would overturn Roe.
  • The next month, a California man was arrested near the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and charged with attempted murder.
  • The assailant was “upset” by the leaked draft indicating that SCOTUS would overturn Roe, according to an affidavit, which said that he “stated that he began thinking about how to give his life a purpose and decided that he would kill the Supreme Court Justice.”
