It’s good news insofar as the federal government is essentially agreeing that the Sixth Circuit “got it right” in the Does v. Snyder case. It’s bad news if you really want the Supreme Court to take the case. Were you to ask the attorneys who represented the Does, they would say it’s GREAT news….because they won. And they really don’t want to see the Supreme Court alter the outcome. God only knows what the High Court would actually decide in the end. Even despite the overwhelmingly positive outcome in Packingham, Does v. Snyder is not so simple a question.
