According to, nothing yet on the Dobbs case. 

I don't know why they are hanging on to it.  When it comes out, the crap will hit the fan, one way or the other.  Regardless of the eventual final ruling, with the fact of the earlier leaked draft opinion, you can bet that legal scholars will have them side by side, line by line, to see what has changed. If nothing else, it will be an interesting insight into how much political protest plays into the decision process.

I've been told that Chief Justice John (hack, spit) Roberts is overly concerned about the reputation and the legacy of the Court.  I think we can say that it doesn't matter now.  Half the country thinks that the Court is right about half the time.  The other half thinks that the Court is right about half the time.  What that tells me is that the whole country believes that the Court is wrong half the time.

It's going to be interesting to watch.

Who ever leaked that needs to be dis-barred.

Yeah, this is odd for them to hold it this long...

Where does Dobbs fall among the decisions they haven't released yet? Maybe it's in line behind others.
They haven't released several significant decisions yet.
