Another Supreme Court update.
The Supreme Court is considering whether or not to take up a Pennsylvania election case.
Five months after the presidential election and nearly 100 days into President Joe Biden‘s term, the Supreme Court is still considering whether to take up a case related to voting rights in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.
So far, the justices declined several requests to dive into one of the most litigious elections in history, denying petitions from then-President Donald Trump and other Republicans seeking to overturn election result in multiple states Biden won.
But at their closed-door conference on Friday the justices discussed a case that has been lingering on the docket since just after the election, brought by a former GOP congressional candidate concerning a state Supreme Court decision that allowed an expansion of ballot deadlines amidst the pandemic.
Trump’s name is not on the case and it will have no impact on the result of the 2020 election.
Law expert Richard L. Hansen pointed out the Supreme Court may actually take up this election case.
“With the election finally settled, the justices might believe now is the time to wade into the issue, though certainly they may prefer to do so in a case where the word ‘Trump’ would not have to be uttered and give the former president more fodder to advance the false claim that he actually won the election,”
We will keep you updated on what happens with this case.
