Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Clerk who worked on Roe decision blasts Supreme Court leak”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A former Supreme Court clerk for Justice Harry Blackmun who worked on the jurist’s landmark majority opinion in Roe V. Wade strongly condemned the recent leak of a draft decision potentially overturning the case.

Jim Ziglar, now 76, ripped the leak as a “travesty” and “disgrace,” and believes it likely came from an activist clerk with access to Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion.

“Whoever did this … I hope the son of a bitch gets disbarred for life and nobody will hire him,” Ziglar said.

Ziglar, who clerked for Blackmun during the historic 1972 term, has had a lengthy and colorful career in the 50 years following the decision.

He worked as a practicing lawyer and investment banker, and served as an Assistant Secretary of the Interior under President Reagan, Commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Services under George W. Bush and Sergeant of Arms of the U.S. Senate.
