The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will not hear Arizona's appeal of the injunction order issued by Judge Bolton on an expedited basis. Instead the hearing is scheduled for week of November 1.
Professor Jacobson once again expresses my own thoughts on this:
The case now will be argued the week of November 1.
That may make DOJ lawyers happy, because they will have more time to put together their brief.
But it will not make Democratic politicians happy to have the Arizona case on the front page as voters are walking into the voting booth on November 2.
Democrats wished too hard for something, and they got it.
