Courts - More on: Outcome of Indiana cert petitions to SCOTUS
In this ILB entry from Sept. 25, and this ILB entry from Sept. 22, background was given on three 7th Circuit opinions in Indiana cases that were on the list of cases to be considered for cert at the conference of the SCOTUS on Monday, Sept. 24th:
- Gilles v. Blanchard, et al., a case involving religious speech on a public university campus - Vincennes Unniversity.
- Mayer, Deborah v. Monroe County - "Honk for peace" case
- Crawford v. Marion County Election Board/Democtratic Party v. Rokita - voter ID case
This SCOTUS Blog entry states that:
Three cases that were slated for consideration at last Monday’s conference have been re-listed for the upcoming conference on Friday, October 5.But neither the Vincennes University case nor the "Honk for Peace" case are among them. Instead, both cases have now been formally denied Supreme Court review, meaning the 7th Circuit's rulings stand.
