In a city full of anonymous sources, the Supreme Court is known to be leak proof. But a century ago the court had a serious hand leak. Judge John Owens of the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit joins SCOTUStalk to tell the story of Ashton Embry, the court clerk who was at the center of the scandal. He also shares stories from his time as Justice Clerk Ruth Bader Ginsburg, how the 9th Circuit is coping in the COVID era, and reveals his thoughts on cameras in the courtroom.
