(FreedomBeacon.com)- The Supreme Court hasn’t released a ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, despite a draft opinion suggesting it will reverse Roe v. Wade. Some legal experts say this is to keep the public’s interest.
Despite hearing arguments in December and a draft opinion leaking in May, the court has yet to deliver an opinion on Dobbs. A lawyer and professor at George Washington University Law School, Jonathan Turley, claimed the Supreme Court was trying to create suspense.
Turley stated to TheDCNF that Chief Justice Roberts “always loves to put on a show and keep the greatest rulings for the conclusion of the court’s session.” According to Turley, “the timeliness of the judgment doesn’t have as much to do with the court’s safety” as it does with an opinion’s impact on the American people.
The long-awaited Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization judgment, US v. Zubaydah, and CVS Pharmacy Inc. v. Doe are three of the most significant rulings from the current session that have not yet been made public. According to a draft ruling leaked to Politico, the Dobbs case will overturn Roe v. Wade since it involves a Mississippi statute that forbids most abortions after the first 15 weeks of pregnancy.
According to Turley, the public is forced to read the other opinions that are provided beforehand because the most important conclusions are revealed at the end of the session.
According to the Los Angeles Times, many legal experts concur with Turley’s prognosis and anticipate the abortion issue will be heard in the last week of the term.
Like prior years, the court frequently delivers the most significant and contentious rulings just before the summer break. In 2015, the Obergefell v. Hodges case decision, which determined to recognize same-sex marriage, was announced on the final day of the court’s session.
Tim George, an attorney from Erie, Pennsylvania, a different legal expert, stated that significant rulings, like the court’s stance on abortion, require years to develop and solidify properly.
Rushing justice seldom results in it. Although everyone wants the Supreme Court to make decisions on the crucial issues, it hears as soon as possible, neither the Court’s judgments nor their schedules need to be influenced by the public, George told Inside Sources.
The Supreme Court has scheduled an additional decision day for Friday, so the abortion opinion may be made public by the end of the week.
