You are misreading the comments. NO ONE is saying it will be decided by the 17th. Da Freed has until the 17th to FILE. a request for the US Supreme Court to hear the case. IF DA Freed filed an request, it will take weeks for the US Supreme Court to decided whyhere to HEAR the case NOT decide it.
The ONLY WAY this case gets decided on the 17th is if PA voluntary decided NOT to petition the US Supreme Court…. even then it would take SEVERAL MONTHS to process everyone
