In short, whatever I thought was going to happen didn’t happen:
“In theory, had the Supreme Court granted review, they would have instituted a single rule for the entire country. That didn’t happen,” said Josh Blackman with the South Texas College of Law. “We’re going to have this patchwork network of states where it’s allowed, [and] have them, and states where it’s not, won’t [have them]. This will probably end fairly quickly. Within the next year at the latest, we’ll probably have some sort of definitive resolution.”
A federal judge in Texas declared the state’s ban unconstitutional, issuing a preliminary injunction. The state is appealing to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Another case is pending before the Texas Supreme Court.
I added a few words in brackets as my quotation as written doesn’t make sense.
