SCOTUS did not/will not rule on the Democrat controlled Pennsylvania Supreme Court changing/making election law. Will rule on NCAA appeal over compensation for football, basketball athletes.
The Supreme Court seldom hears cases involving the NCAA and college athletics.
“This is not a sustainable state of affairs in our democratic republic.” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, put it best in Wednesday’s “Examining Irregularities in the 2020 Election” hearing.
In the Pennsylvania case, an earlier challenge by the Republicans, which included the state party and lawmakers, was rejected by the Supreme Court on Oct. 19. The court deadlocked 4-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the court’s three liberals, Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. That tie vote left the state supreme court decision in place.
In a statement on Wednesday written by Justice Samuel Alito and joined by Justices Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas, the three conservatives said the court’s handling of the matter “needlessly created conditions that could lead to serious post-election problems.”
Alito wrote that it would be “highly desirable” to decide the case before the election and that there is a “strong likelihood” that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling violates the Constitution.
Ruling In It’s Entirety From The Supreme Court of The United States
“The application for injunctive relief presented to Justice Alito and by him referred to the Court is denied.”
The Supreme Court said… that it will not fast-track Pennsylvania Republicans’ challenge to an extended deadline for counting absentee ballots in the state, though the justices left open the possibility that they may ultimately rule in the GOP’s favor.
