Six decisions handed down on Wednesday involved disputes about veterans’ benefits, Medicare reimbursement, and gaming on tribal land in Texas. One case that was not settled was Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Emotions around the Dobbs case escalated in early May, when Politico published a leaked draft decision, written by Justice Samuel Alito, describing Roe’s decision as “wrong from the start.”

The leak sparked protests outside the Supreme Court building and judges’ homes, as well as attacks on pregnancy crisis centers and attempted murder against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Dobbs is the first abortion case since Justice Amy Connie Barrett joined the court in October 2020, creating a 6-3 conservative-leaning majority.
