The justice who is being targeted by radical pro-abortion activists spoke remotely from the Supreme Court to a crowd at the Antonin Scalia School of Law at George Mason University.
The Washington Post reports that someone asked Alito, “I think it would just be really helpful for all of us to hear, personally, are you all doing OK in these very challenging times?”
Alito reluctantly responded.
“This is a subject I told myself I wasn’t going to talk about today regarding, you know — given all the circumstances,” Alito said.
“The court right now, we had our conference this morning, we’re doing our work,” he added. “We’re taking new cases, we’re headed toward the end of the term, which is always a frenetic time as we get our opinions out.”
It was the first time the justices met since Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts opened an investigation into the leak.
