Supreme Court Again Takes No Action in North Carolina Voting Case

This is the monster voting case up on a cert. petition from the 4th Circuit.  Nothing in today’s SCOTUS order. 

Pending is not only the cert. petition itself, but the governor and AG’s motion to dismiss the case, and the Legislature’s motion to intervene to keep the case alive.

It will likely be relisted for a fourth conference (next conference May 11, with likely announcements May 15).

The more times it is listed, the more I suspect we will see a denial, with a dissent from denial. Then again, the additional fight between the executive and legislative branches in North Carolina makes things more uncertain.

UPDATE: The Court also did not decide the North Carolina gerrymandering case today.
