Supreme Court announces extra day of opinions on WEDNESDAY with 33 decisions – including potentially overturning Roe v. Wade – left to announce before the end of the mid-July term

  • The Supreme Court added to its calendar on Monday another day it will issue opinions on Wednesday, June 8, 2022 
  • Nine justices have 30 opinions left to release in the final weeks of their term 
  • June is usually hectic at the Supreme Court, but more so this year as the nine justices reshape social issues – like abortion and gun rights 
  • Supreme Court is also scrambling to salvage the federal Judicial Branch’s legitimacy after the leak last month showing a Roe v. Wade overturn  
  • Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre released a statement slamming a Louisiana law that would increase criminal consequences for abortion providers 
  •  ‘The Louisiana legislature has taken the latest step in a growing attack against the fundamental freedoms of Americans,’ she wrote
  • The law would increase prison maximums from five years to 10 and the fines from a range of $5,000 – $50,000 to between $10,000 – $100,000
  • The law would go into effect if Roe v. Wade is overturned and punishes abortion providers and not the mother seeking to terminate her pregnancy
