Supreme Court Blocks Curbside Voting In Alabama, An Option During Pandemic - [www.npr.org]

>The high court issued its order Wednesday night, without explanation, over the dissent of the court's three liberal justices.

Seems like that just encourages retrying variations on the same case over and over again. After all, every case is a LITTLE different.

Emergency SCOTUS orders rarely come with a written opinion.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Well, this one came with several dissenting written opinions.

Also, the article doesn’t say what the next step is. As it stands, there are two levels of Federal courts which have said that Alabama’s ban on curbside voting to accommodate disabled or folks at high risk from Covid was unreasonable.

Not a lawyer, but I don’t think don’t think the Supremes can just say “wrong!” without referring it back down for further consideration; and I don’t think this counts as a final Supreme Court ruling without a majority opinion. Maybe they’re planning to take it up next term?
