No Surprise: #SCOTUS Refuses to Hear North Carolina Voting Case

Here is the order list and an AP report. The order is no surprise as the issue was whether the 4th Circuit erred in putting two parts of North Carolina’s strict voting law on hold for the 2014 elections, and issue which will likely be mooted by the time we get to the next election. The federal trial on North Carolina’s voter id law will take place this summer, followed by an inevitable 4th circuit appeal, and a chance for the Supreme Court to consider these issues on the merits.

I discuss why the Supreme Court might or might not have erred in temporarily blocking the 4th Circuit’s North Carolina order in my piece, Reining in the Purcell Principle.
