Hey Twitter, the Hobby Lobby Ruling Isn’t SCOTUSblog’s Fault

SCOTUSblog is a private blog, sponsored by Bloomberg Law, that’s “devoted to comprehensively covering the U.S. Supreme Court without bias and according to the highest journalistic and legal ethical standards.” It’s one of the most-respected sources for Supreme Court coverage and analysis. It has its own Twitter account.

The Supreme Court, yesterday, made a controversial 5-4 ruling in a case known to many as the ‘Hobby Lobby’ case. Using 1993’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the majority decided that closely held corporations aren’t required to provide contraceptive coverage for employees. Unsurprisingly, this pissed a lot of people off. The Supreme Court does not operate a Twitter account (because that would be ridiculous).

I can see some of you are ahead of me.

Angry folks took to Twitter to vent, thinking they were blasting The Supreme Court’s official Twitter account – @SCOTUSblog.

They weren’t, of course. But that didn’t stop SCOTUSblog from having a lot of fun. They spent hours responding to dozens upon dozens of misdirected hostilities.

Ah, a call to action:

And then things hit a whole other level when people started catching on to what @SCOTUSblog was doing.

And finally…

Just FYI, the Twitter bio for @SCOTUSblog reads “A private blog about the Supreme Court of the U.S.”
