Yesterday I wrote about a petition that I said had been filed with Justice Alito by Republican legislative leaders in Pennsylvania trying to stop the congressional redistricting ordered by the state Supreme Court. The post explained why I believe the matter is a longshot.
When I posted the petition I noticed that the title of the file had the word “draft” in it, but didn’t think too much of it.
But now it appears that the SCOTUS information office has not indicated it has received the petition.
So perhaps it has not been filed. Maybe they are still tweaking it.
Or maybe they think better of bothering Justice Alito with almost the same argument again.
