Excerpt from "The World and Everything in It"
REICHARD: Well, let’s start with the leak of this draft. How does something like this happen?
MCDONALD: That’s a good question because it really hasn’t happened that I know of before, where a draft of an opinion was leaked, at least in modern times. But it's an egregious violation of the duties of confidentiality that surround both law clerks and regular employees at the Supreme Court.
