Reply To: Solicitor General to SCOTUS: Don’t grant Snyder petition


Robin Vander Wall

The Supreme Court is not likely to consider it at all. The Court will consider only the questions presented related to the specific case and controversy we all call Snyder. The Court will be bound by its own stare decisis in assessing how to rule on the Snyder case IF (And I regard that as a huge IF right now) the petition for cert is granted. As persuasive authority goes, the high Court is least likely to be impressed by the outcome of a state supreme court decision.
