On Friday last week, the Supreme Court finally got around to taking a look at some of the court cases that have been sitting in the SCOTUS docket for months now.
They had promised all along that they wouldn't even bother to look at them until after Joe Biden was inaugurated and that's exactly what they did.
I'm not quite sure how many are actually in the docket for SCOTUS to review, but I know that there were at least three.
There is one from Sidney Powell, one from Lin Wood, and one more from the Republican Party of Pennsylvania.
On Monday, the Supreme Court decided that there would not review the case of Pennsylvania and the challenge to whether or not what the state of Pennsylvania did in changing the rules is actually legal.
Sidney Powell gave an update via Telegram:
Denials with Dissents
1. Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Degraffenreid (formerly Boockvar), began with Application for stay filed September 28, 2020. No. 20-542. (CU/CUF/TPC amicus brief in this case on November 25, 2020.)
2. Corman (formerly Scarnati) v. Pennsylvania Democratic Party. Petitioners are Pennsylvania state legislators, began with Petition filed October 27, 2020. No. 20-574.
In these two cases, Thomas dissented and Alito/Gorsuch also dissented.
Roberts and Kavanaugh and Barrett joined the Dems Dissents appear at the end of the Order list.
As Thomas said: “These cases provide us with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle. The refusal to do so is inexplicable.”
Denials without any dissent.
3. Congressman Mike Kelly v. Pennsylvania, began with Application for injunctive relief filed December 3, 2020. No. 20-810.
4. Trump v. Degraffenreid (PA), No. 20-845, began with Petition for Cert filed December 21, 2020.
This was John Eastman’s case.
Fortunately, the bigger cases are still up in the air and hopefully we'll get news that the Supreme Court will be willing to hear the cases.
