: I read news titled "Robers mum on Roe," refering Judge John Roberts' hearing yesterday. What is "mum on Roe" and where did it came from? Thanks for taking time to reply.

Mum means silent. Roe is a reference to the famous Supreme Court decision on Roe vs. Wade. Roberts is keeping silent on his position on the case.
