I read about this yesterday and I am a little confused. I thought the District Court the case originated from had to issue a new ruling despite the state filing a petition to the Supreme Court. The District Court does not have to wait for the Supreme Court to decide if they will hear it, was my understanding.
Can you tell us how long the Supreme typically takes to decide if they will grant a writ of certiorari? I had been googling this, but have had no luck.
