Before the Supreme Court’s decision on the health-care law, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg warned not to believe rumors of what the court was going to do.
She subscribed to the principle that those who know about the court’s decisions before they are announced don’t talk, and those who talk don’t know, she said.
Justice Antonin Scalia added his own twist Wednesday night as he denied reports that the conservative justices have had a falling out with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. over his vote to uphold the individual mandate, the key element of the Affordable Care Act.
“You shouldn’t believe what you read about the court in the newspapers, because the information has either been made up or given to the newspapers by somebody who is violating a confidence, which means that person is not reliable,” Scalia said during an interview on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight.
“So you’ve had no falling out with Justice Roberts?” Morgan asked.
