Petition for Rehearing Denied in Kobach v. EAC: Next Stop SCOTUS?

Yesterday [corrected] the 10th Circuit panel which decided the Kobach v. EAC case issued this one line order denying rehearing. Kansas and Arizona did not seek rehearing en banc, so the only place to go now is SCOTUS for further appeals.

If the Court takes the case it could be a major one about the scope of federal versus state power in setting election rules for federal elections.

A potential complication: a new EAC that could well deadlock on any decisions about how to litigate this case.
