This week a man angry about the leaked Dobbs opinion showed up to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home with a gun, a knife, burglary tools, and the intent to kill the Justice. Despite this, to the Justices’ credit, they are working just as hard as ever resolving orders and issuing four opinions. You hosts discuss the assassination attempt, talk about noteworthy orders, and unpack those opinions. Zack also interviews Supreme Court advocate Morgan Ratner, who clerked for both Kavanaugh and the Chief Justice. Finally, curious about whether other Justices have been similarly targeted, your hosts look at the history of attacks against them.
