See’s no need for Temporary Restraining Order “in light of the court’s willingness to expedite resolution of plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction”
A three-judge federal court panel has denied Pennsylvania Republicans’ request to immediately suspend implementation of a court-imposed remedial Congressional map.
For more information, see our prior post on the unfolding Pennsylvania redistricting drama. This is a separate proceeding from the request for a stay made to the U.S. Supreme Court.
As we reported yesterday, Pennsylvania Republicans—including incumbent members of Congress—filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking to enjoin the Secretary of State, Robert Torres, from using the new House districts drawn by the state supreme court.
This morning, the Chief Judge of the Third Circuit assigned the case to Kent A. Jordan, Christopher C. Conner and Jerome B. Simandle. Jordan is from Delaware and a George W. Bush appointee on the 3rd Circuit. Conner was also appointed by W. and is a chief district judge in Pennsylvania, while Simandle is a district judge in New Jersey appointed by H.W. Bush. This is as favorable a panel as Pennsylvania Republicans could’ve hoped for.
