U.S. House Committee to Hear Testimony on Alleged Supreme Court Leak

This involves the 2014 Hobby Lobby v. Burwell ruling

A U.S. House of Representatives committee will on Thursday hear the testimony of a former anti-abortion leader who has alleged he was told in advance about the outcome of a major 2014 Supreme Court ruling regarding contraceptives.

Reverend Rob Schenck recently told The New York Times that he was informed of the 2014 Hobby Lobby v. Burwell ruling weeks before its public announcement after two conservative allies of his dined at the home of Justice Samuel Alito and his wife. Alito has denied the allegation.

Schenck, who has since disavowed many of his socially conservative stances, will appear on Thursday at a House Judiciary Committee hearing titled "Undue Influence: Operation Higher Court and Politicking at SCOTUS," according to a previously released witness list.
