#SCOTUS Does Not Act Yet in TX or NC Election Cases

Although the Court granted cert. in two cases today, no word yet on the Texas redistricting case (now up at three conferences) or the North Carolina racial gerrymandering case. There was a chance the Court could have acted on this today given recent Court order stopping the 2017 special elections in North Carolina ordered by the lower court pending resolution of this appeal.

The most likely thing to happen with the North Carolina case is for it to be held for Bethune-Hill (from Va.) and McCrory v. Harris (another NC racial gerrymandering case) to be resolved first this term.

Who knows what will happen with the Texas voter id case?  I’d guess if conservatives were confident they’d have a fifth Justice by the time it is heard, they’ll vote to hear it.
