Georgia Supreme Court to hear
Georgia Supreme Court to hear governor v. attorney general appeal
The Georgia Supreme Court will hear the appeal of the Governor over his right to withdraw the state's appeal of the adverse decision in the Voting Rights Act preclearance case. The hearing will be on 6 May, about a week after the argument in the U.S. Supreme Court. Although the Atlanta Journal Constitution suggests that the case might be moot by then, I think that a decision for the Governor before the U.S. Supreme Court rules would probably allow the Governor to withdraw the appeal.
Supreme Court Rule 47.2 says, "A petitioner or appellant may file a motion to dismiss the case, with proof of service as required by Rule 29, tendering to the Clerk any fees due and costs payable." No mention of a restriction as to time.
Thanks to SCOTUSblog for the tip, but their link to the AJC is wrong.
