U.S. Supreme Court takes no action after re-visiting “monster” voting law

The U.S. Supreme Court did not announce any action Monday regarding a North Carolina voting rights case justices discussed at a Friday conference.

As Rick Hasen said last week, “no news is no news,” and doesn’t necessarily indicate anything good or bad. The Election Law Blogger speculated that the case may be relisted for a third time this upcoming Friday conference, with a possible announcement next Monday.

There are three parts to consider in the case North Carolina v. North Carolina State Conference of the NAACPand justices could decide to take up and/or resolve one part, all or none.

The first part is the appeal as a whole. The second part is a motion to dismiss the appeal that was filed by state Attorney General Josh Stein and Gov. Roy Cooper. The third part is a motion filed by the state legislature to intervene in the case and keep the appeal alive.
