Abstract

It’s not unusual for there to be close decisions in the Supreme Court, but with a vacancy there are rising 4-4 decisions. In all these decisions they upheld a circuit court’s ruling. Many of these cases, often politically charged, will likely make their way up to the Supreme Court again after the appointment of the ninth justice.
