During a panel discussion on the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last Friday, a CNN legal expert stated that the hard-right conservative wing on the court is putting Chief Justice John Roberts and his moderating influence on the sideline as it pursues its legal agenda.
Speaking with hosts Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow, CNN Supreme Court reporter Ariane de Vogue claimed the five conservatives on the court are "moving on" from Roberts.
"John Roberts, though, very deeply, deeply a conservative himself, for instance, on Roe v. Wade wanted it overturned over time, just not immediately, but he wanted a more incremental approach," host Sciutto proposed. "He's lost this court, has he not, now that there's quite a conservative five willing to take on a whole host of other issues? Where is the moderating force at this point?"
"Right," de Vogue replied. "I remember before Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, Roberts was in that key position. He could really decide case, his vote counted. Now [Justice] Amy Coney Barrett has taken that seat."
"No question he's a conservative," she added. "We see him taking a lead often in the religious liberty cases. He was there with the conservative -- with the Second Amendment case. Here, in the abortion case, it really outlines how the conservative, the right branch of this court is moving on without him."
"Roberts, he wanted to maybe allow the Mississippi law, but stop there; wait on Roe. The conservatives didn't stop. They didn't want that incrementalism, they moved forward without him, leaving him behind on perhaps one of the biggest cases, really, in decades."

One woman is dead and another is in surgery after a shooting in an Atlanta Subway store, WSB-TV reports.
The women were Subway employees and the shooter was a customer who was allegedly upset over too much mayonnaise on a sandwich.
“It just breaks my heart, to know that someone has the audacity to point a weapon, and shoot someone for as little as too much mayonnaise on a sandwich,” said Willie Glenn, the co-owner of that Subway location on Northside Drive in downtown Atlanta.
Glenn said both the young women had only recently started working at the location.
“They were just model employees,” Glenn said.
Al Robinson, also a co-owner of the Subway restaurant, described the shooting as just too much.
“You pull out a gun and shoot somebody, over a sandwich, my heart just breaks right now,” he said.
Police are still looking for the shooter.
By Dietrich Knauth (Reuters) -The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected another Bayer AG bid to dismiss litigation alleging that its Roundup weedkiller causes cancer as the German pharmaceutical and chemical giant tries to avoid potentially billions of dollars in damages. The justices turned away a Bayer appeal and left in place a lower court decision upholding an $87 million judgment awarded in a lawsuit in California to Alberta and Alva Pilliod, who were diagnosed with cancer after spraying Roundup for more than three decades. The Supreme Court on June 21 rejected a Bayer appeal in a differe...
