More than 60 progressive groups called for the Senate Judiciary Committee to investigate ethics lapses plaguing the Supreme Court in a letter sent on Tuesday.

Groups including Demand Justice, Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the National Organization for Women and Indivisible sent a letter urging the committee to open an investigation into the court’s lack of a binding ethics code. It comes on the heels of allegations that Justice Samuel Alito leaked the outcome of his 2014 decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby to members of a conservative Christian group that had been waging a pressure campaign targeting the court’s conservatives.

“This is an urgent reminder of the critical need for Supreme Court ethics reform and demands a thorough investigation,” the letter states.


*Alito, Thomas and Scalia are all alleged to have accepted food and lodging from Faith & Action members Donald and Gayle Wright.
