Supreme Court Update
In our last CSA Newsletter, we informed you that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) had required San Juan County to reply to our Petition for Writ of Certiorari, which the County had previously declined to do.
The County has filed their response and the Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF), which represents Common Sense Alliance in this matter before SCOTUS, has posted their reply brief as well as a comment about the case and the County’s paperwork on their website at PLF Liberty Blog.
The PLF blog post cuts right to the point, finding “Unsurprisingly, the County’s response dodged the question presented by our petition” and that the county had adopted ‘tired arguments” in an effort to prop up their position.
It is our understanding that SCOTUS will decide in their September 26 Conference if they will hear this CSA case.
For those of you that are interested in delving in further, the PLF reply brief also finds “The County’s statement of facts is replete with argument, generalizations, and conclusory statements, and is largely unsupported by citation to the record,” as well as at least a couple of instances where “The County’s assertion is untrue.”
The CSA case begs the question: Why do we elect people and pay the County to use our money and resources to undermine our rights and lie while doing it?
Thank you for your interest and continuing support of Common Sense Alliance.
