SUPREME COURT IS BACK IN SESSION

The Supreme Court is back in session after its end-of-summer hiatus and issued several high-profile rulings.

Here’s a rundown of the most important decisions:

Fetal personhood:

The court declined to take up a case that would determine whether an unborn baby is entitled to have constitutional rights.

This case originated in 2019 when a pro-life group called Catholics for Life, along with two pregnant women, sued the state of Rhode Island over its law codifying the right to an abortion.

At the time the Rhode Island Supreme Court ruled that they didn’t have the legal standing to bring the case.

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Rade this summer, the plaintiffs in Rhode Island asked the court to take up their case.

The Supreme Court declined without comment.

Mail-in ballots:

In a win for election integrity, the court vacated a lower court ruling that forced Pennsylvania to count mail-in ballots that had no date on the envelope.

This stems from a small election for the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas in Pennsylvania, where the plaintiff, David Ritter, ran and lost the race because 257 mail-in ballots that didn’t have dates were counted.

Pennsylvania Republicans were concerned that this precedent could affect the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections.

Pennsylvania law stipulates that the date must be written on the outer envelope of mail-in ballots.

The justices ruled 7-2 that the 3rd Circuit must “dismiss the case as moot.”

Church shooter:

The Supreme Court rejected an appeal from Dylann Roof, the man who was convicted in the racially-motivated murder of nine people in a South Carolina church in 2015.

Roof wanted the court to review how to handle disagreements over the sharing of mental illness evidence.

The court denied his appeal without comment.
