Justices hold 1st meeting since leak of draft Roe opinion
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court’s nine justices met in private for the first time since the leak of a draft opinion that would overrule Roe v. Wade and sharply curtail abortion rights in roughly half the states.
The court offered no word on what was discussed in Thursday’s gathering in the justices’ private, wood-paneled conference room, other than to indicate at least one decision will be announced Monday.
By custom, no one aside from the justices attended.
The abortion case is among 37 unresolved cases that were argued in the fall, winter and spring. The justices typically issue all their decisions by early summer.
