I’m a bit confused now. Did not 6 Justices affirm that SORNA violates the ex-post facto clause of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. If so how can the Commonwealth go to Federal court to overturn it? Does not the State Constitution
affect this, as it was a State law in the first place. I believe that the Federal ex-post fatco issue is a separate but equally important issue, but should not invalidate the Pa Supreme Court ruling.

Also, how long does the Commonwealth have to appeal anyway?
