Justice Neil Gorsuch has asked Missouri to respond by Thursday to an application by Planned Parenthood asking the Supreme Court to reinstate a lower court's order blocking the state from enforcing two of its abortion requirements. Amy Howe covers the application at this link.
Today the Supreme Court denied a motion by the challengers in two Texas redistricting cases. The challengers had asked the justices to speed up consideration of the state's request to weigh in on the merits of two lower-court orders striking down two of the state's federal congressional districts and the map for the lower house of the state's legislature. The justices have already put those lower-court orders on hold.
