Any nitwit knows SCOTUS is not about to involve itself in the operations of the Republican caucus of a state senate. Clearly, the case was brought for publicity to begin with. And they'll drag it out just to pretend that they're doing something--which is how they'll keep raising money to pay themselves.
The taxpayers need to stop subsidizing these politically-motivated farces. Why provide a free forum for their attention-seeking? Charge them full costs of operating the court. Since constitutional lawyers run upwards of $500/hour, I would think $1000/hour per justice, plus $250/hour per clerk would be a reasonable fee to the losing party.
