[Corrected] Supreme Court Summarily Rejects Constitutional Challenge to the Size of the House of Representatives

There were no noted dissents in this order dismissing the case for lack of jurisdiction.

From my earlier coverage:

The legal claim is more than a bit nutty, and it does not appear to be litigated very well. But in essence (as noted in this Town Hall piece), depends on the idea that the country ratified a  constitutional amendment but no one knows it….

Plaintiffs’ case has lots of procedural problems as well. It does not appear to be handled by lawyers who can litigate properly before the court.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post suggested the size of the Congress could be changed only constitutionally. This was incorrect. Congress has power to increase the size via legislation.
