Supreme Court Justice Alito: Leaked Draft Opinion Endangered Lives of Justices

From a story on by David Cohen headlined “Alito: Leaked draft opinion endangered lives of justices”:

Justice Samuel Alito said Tuesday that the unauthorized disclosure of a draft landmark Supreme Court majority opinion on abortion put some justices at risk of assassination.

Speaking at a Heritage Foundation event, Alito said the release of his draft opinion made the justices presumed to be in the majority “targets for assassination because it gave people a rational reason to think they could prevent that from happening by killing one of us.”
