Texas Files Its Reply Briefs in Supreme Court; Supreme Court Could Rule at Any Time

You can find the briefs here and here.

With the earlier PA case from Rep. Kelly, the Supreme Court issued a one line order denying the emergency relief requested about an hour after the reply was filed.

This case is more complicated, because there are at least two Justices who believe that cases of original jurisdiction have to be heard on the merits. But not all Justices who dissent (or partially dissent) need to note their dissents if it is a summary order.

I expect we will hear something today, or perhaps tomorrow if the Court decides to write an opinion. I expect the Court will reject this suit, for reasons I’ve given earlier.

I find the support for this case among about half of the congressional republicans really troubling, but I don’t think that makes it more likely the Court will grant the case.
