In a judicial conference on Friday, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas denounced the idea of pressing the court for desired outcomes.
The Supreme Court’s leaked draft ruling was discussed for the first time by Thomas at the 11th Circuit court conference in Atlanta this week. As soon as the ruling is made official, Democrats are in panic and there are rallies against the Supreme Court.
“No matter how hard you try, we’re not going to be able to deliver exactly what you desire. This week’s events are an example of that “According to accounts, Thomas stated.
The Supreme Court scandal was briefly mentioned by Thomas, although he didn’t go into great detail about it.
Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling that Thomas’ illness was unrelated to the coronavirus, he spent a week in a hospital in Washington, D.C. with “flu-like symptoms.” The 73-year-old juror was absent for the first week of oral arguments before returning for the second week via videoconference.
Former President George H.W. Bush nominated Thomas to the Supreme Court in 1991 to succeed Thurgood Marshall, who was the nation’s first black justice. Thomas has served on the court since that time.
Whenever Chief Justice John Roberts is in the minority on a matter, Thomas decides who will write the majority opinion, which is why he is the most senior justice on the court.
Speaking at the same press conference on Thursday, Chief Justice John Roberts termed the leak a “extremely egregious” violation of the Constitution. Further, the justice dismissed any suggestion that the leak would have an impact on the Supreme Court’s final ruling.
“A leak of this magnitude is really awful,” Roberts expressed his outrage. “If the individual who created it believes that it would have an impact on our work, they are just mistaken.”
