Further Update on Rahm Case

Chicago Tribune: The Illinois Supreme Court will take Rahm's appeal, and will decide it on the existing briefing, without oral argument. What to make of that? First, the Court sees the need to act very quickly, given the imminent election. Second, I don't think they would have taken this step if there wasn't a fairly good chance of a reversal, thereby allowing Emanuel to run.
