  •  Not so sure now..... (0+ / 0-)

    .....no additional briefs or oral arguments, just the case as presented to the Appeals court.  

    So I'm not so sure Rahm is going to win this.  If allowed to argue the merits of the decision, I think he could have possibly won.  Now I'm not sure.  

    •  He is allowed to argue the merits, (0+ / 0-)

      that is, the briefs he filed below, as well as his petition to the Supreme Court, argue them, and the court will consider those arguments.  So, unless he failed to argue the "merits" in the Court of Appeals, his arguments will be before the Supreme Court.  Given that ballots have to be printed by next Monday, this is about the only way it could be done.

      I don't think the procedure here has much to do with the outcome.
