Put aside the politics, whether you believe this decision was right or wrong, and consider simply that no one expected a 5-4 decision with Chief Justice Roberts siding with the four liberal justices. No one. The U.S. Supreme Court does not leak.
Update: Well, OK, not no one. Someone pay Julio Garcia $300. And TPM’s Brian Beutler astutely took note of Roberts’s taxation angle when the case was argued in front of the court in March. But my point is that seemingly nothing about this decision leaked from the court itself.
