Michael Schaffer: What Is the Supreme Court Hiding?

From Michael Schaffer’s Capital City column on politico.com headlined “What Is the Supreme Court Hiding?”:

When Stephen Breyer stepped down from the Supreme Court in June, he was obliged to pack up 28 years worth of memos, draft opinions, correspondence, notes and other real-time documentation of his tenure. But he was under no obligation whatsoever when it came to the question of what to do with the papers after that.

Officially, the Court’s not saying what will become of Breyer’s material — covering behind-the-scenes activities surrounding every major case from Bush v. Gore to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. “I have no information to provide at this time regarding Justice Breyer’s papers,” says Patricia McCabe, the Court’s chief information officer.
