We still believe it was Justice Sammie or the Justices Thomases who leaked the damn Dobbs decision, but the lack of security protocols is pretty stupid regardless:
Long before the leak of a draft opinion reversing Roe v. Wade, some Supreme Court justices often used personal email accounts for sensitive transmissions instead of secure servers set up to guard such information, among other security lapses not made public in the court’s report on the investigation last month.
New details revealed to CNN by multiple sources familiar with the court’s operations offer an even more detailed picture of yearslong lax internal procedures that could have endangered security, led to the leak and hindered an investigation into the culprit.
Supreme Court employees also used printers that didn’t produce logs – or were able to print sensitive documents off-site without tracking – and “burn bags” meant to ensure the safe destruction of materials were left open and unattended in hallways.
“This has been going on for years,” one former employee said.
I’m sure that this shocking lack of security has been going on forever, but I’m also sure that the leak came from SCOTUS itself. If the journalist had found it while dumpster diving I don’t think that they would be protecting their source so vigorously.

Well if I was the journalist in question I wold protect the location of that dumpster…it’s bound to be a worthwile informant for other decisison!

The justices thomases is funny, in a sad way. This Alito is even worse. We have high standards for a Supreme Court Justice and this cowardly snob is not suitable. What has he done for us? I mean, he is a brave culture warrior and all, but is my life better because of Samuel Alito? It is not!
I try to keep my list of Washington DC political enemies short, because i still have some dignity. But i did not ask for him, he is not welcome, i am happy to call him out for the lost soul that he is. I feel sorry for his children. Can you imagine if Sam Alito was your dad? What could you do?
Yet if some regular slob screwed up on ANY of this sh!t, they’d have guillotined everyone on the paper trail. A new take on just-us in the 21st century which still bites.

When God passed out frowns
Alito thought he said gowns
So he got a reaaaaly long one.
So … where are the chants of “Lock Them Up!” like we heard when it was disclosed that Hillary Clinton sometimes used her private email server for government business???? I’m waiting …
Honor among beeves.
