Amit Jain is justice Sonia Sotomayor's clerk who is accused of releasing the Supreme court's draft relating to abortion.

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a historic Supreme Court case in which the Court decided that a pregnant woman's right to choose whether or not to have an abortion is protected by the Constitution of the United States without undue government interference.

The majority of the US supreme court voted to overturn this rule as per the draft that got leaked recently. The clerk Amit Jain's name has been brought up allegedly by the media. Here is the truth to it.

Who Is Amit Jain, Sonia Sotomayor Clerk? 

Amit Jain is currently serving as associate justice Sonia Sotomayor's clerk. Further, he is the CEO of Sequoia Capital India, a Standford University and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi alumnus.

Did Amit Jain Leak Supreme Court Draft?

Amit Jain has been alleged to have leaked the abortion draft by Samuel Alito. Jain criticized Yale for backing Brett Kavanaugh's nomination as a Yale undergraduate. In a 2017 study, Politico's Josh Gerstein assessed his net worth.

According to a leaked draft judgment released by Politico on Monday, a majority of the United States Supreme Court has decided to overturn the landmark 1973 case Roe v. Wade, which established the right to abortion over 50 years ago.

The validity of the document Politico released could not be confirmed immediately by National Public Radio.

According to Politico, the draft was created by Justice Samuel Alito and shared in February. Alito was joined by Justice Clarence Thomas and all three of former President Donald Trump's nominees - Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, according to the story.

Justices Stephen Breyer, Elana Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor were working on dissents, according to Politico. Chief Justice John Roberts' vote was not known.
