“The lengthy legal fight over Utah election law is over as U.S. Supreme Court refuses to accept GOP appeal”

Salt Lake Tribune:

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday ended five years of legal battles by the Utah Republican Party to quash a 2014 election law that allows candidates to qualify for the ballot by collecting signatures and/or through the caucus-convention system.

Justices refused to hear the party’s challenge of that law, called SB54, rejecting the party’s arguments that it unconstitutionally interferes with its right to choose how to select its own nominees.

I really expected the Court to bite on this one. This is a question the Court has not squarely faced.
