To the editor,

Historically, the Supreme Court and lower federal courts have relied upon stare decisis in hearing cases that challenge former judicial decisions. The rationale underlying stare decisis is that it is “promot(ing) the evenhanded, predictable, and consistent development of legal principles, foster(ing) reliance on judicial decisions, and contribut(ing) to the actual and perceived integrity of the judicial process.” The recent leak of the Supreme Court draft in the Mississippi case has severely harmed the integrity of the judicial process.
