SCOTUS Ethics Breach: Supreme Court Judges Alito and Kavanaugh Meet w/ Anti-LGBT Hate Group Leader

Via the website Above The Law:

If the Supreme Court followed the basic rules of ethics applicable to every other court, Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and Brett Kavanaugh would have to recuse themselves from the Bostock, Altitude Express, and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes cases — the ones which seek to reinterpret Title VII to allow for bigotry against the LGBT community. Alito and Kavanaugh took some sort of meeting and even posed for a picture with the leader of a virulent anti-LGBT group, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).

It’s really bad enough that conservative justices are so willing to give public aid and comfort to right-wing groups like the Federalist Society. But this meeting with the NOM is is outrageous. NOM has filed an amicus brief with the Court in the Bostock/Altitude/Funeral Homes cases. The Court has heard arguments and the justices are ostensibly working on their opinions in those cases RIGHT NOW. Taking meeting and a picture with people who have a case and argument pending in front of you would be unacceptable for any other court in the land.

Brian Brown has a long history of anti-gay activism is working to get the Supreme Court to overturn its 2015 Obergefell decision. He also has publically denounced presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s marriage as illegitimate.

SCOTUS unfortunately is not subject to the same ethics rules that all other judges in the country are.

  1. I remember when brown paper sacks were mailed to interested fascist bigots, e.g. American Nazi Party. George Lincoln Rockwell had his token corn cob pipe,, in a southern California city, accepting my sister’s bouquet of flowers reminiscent of die Hitlerjugend in a dirndl dress handing her bouquet to Adolph Hitler.
    Our father Captain Victor Dale of the California State Police was an admirer of Adoloh Hitler…all mailing correspondence came very discreetly in plain wrapped brown paper sack.
    Jews were described as rats, black African americans were characterized as monkeys and identified as “ni**ers”. As the oldest male child, my sibling brother and sister were to shake hands with Mr Rockwell and his bodyguard-who eventually assassinated him!
