After months of investigation of about 80 suspects among SCOTUS clerks and others, the US Supreme Court Marshal announced that they have been unable to "identify a person responsible by a preponderance of the evidence" for leaking the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade. That was the leak that set off nationwide violence, threats against conservative Justices, and an assassination attempt on Justice Kavanagh.
This was such a massive breach of Supreme Court rules and professional ethics at the highest level that law professor Jonathan Turley said the fact that they weren’t able to identify a culprit is “almost as chilling as the leak itself."
At the link above, a number of Congressional Republicans react, calling the failure “inexcusable” and predicting it will lead to more rogue behavior. It also adds fuel to the criticism of Chief Justice Roberts, for entrusting the investigation to the Supreme Court Marshal. But Roberts’ critics will get a chance to see if they can do any better because this mystery has just been added to the growing list of things that will be investigated by the House Judiciary Committee.

This is gov efficiency at its best!!!!!!!
This is the same style efficiency My father Harold Maine was enjored in the Philippines in WWII. With a hole in his right leg they shipped him to Hawaii, then through the Panama Canal, up to NYC. Put him on a train and shipped him to Seattle, WA then to Boise Idaho before they fixed his leg by taking two ribs and part of his pelvis to fill the hole and grafting skin over the hole. This is what I call gov efficiency in action!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
