    If the Supreme Court reverses and holds that Virginia has standing, this gets remanded to the 4th Circuit for an appeal on the merits, doesn't it?  

    •  They'll Rule On Constitutionality Not Standing (0+ / 0-)

      Like I was saying is I don't think they are going to punt and just rule on standing...I think whatever they decide, it will be based on its merits. Yeah, they can rule on standing, just I doubt they will. If they indeed do rule on it based on its merits, they would look at all the lower court and appeals court decisions, which in this case when they're looking at merits they have Hudson's uncountered merit-based arguments. As in football, when you punt, you turn the ball over to the other side.
