U.S. Supreme Court Puts Petitioning at Polls Case on April 16 Conference

Published on March 31, 2010, by in General.

The U.S. Supreme Court has put Citizens for Police Accountability v Browning, 09-861, on its April 16, 2010 conference. The decision on whether the court will hear the case will not be released until April 19 at the earliest. Sometimes the court mulls over whether to take a case, and then postpones making a quick decision and sets it for another conference.

This is the case from Florida, over whether it is constitutional for a state to let exit pollsters stand within 25 feet of a polling place location, but which won’t let petitioners stand within 100 feet. Both groups only wish to speak to voters on their way out of the polling place.
