Breaking: Federal District Court Holds that Adding Census Question to Citizenship Violates Administrative Procedure Act, But is Not Unconstitutional; May Moot Issues in SCOTUS Case

The Court’s 277-page opinion is here. Given the court’s findings of no unconstitutional purpose on the part of Secretary Ross, it is not clear to me if this moots issues in the portion of this case being argued next month at the Supreme Court.

But the holding under the Administrative Procedure Act is significant; I’ve long said that this seemed to me to be a much stronger basis for attacking the question than the constitutional question.
