The Supreme Court set a special hearing for the writ petition challenging the new map of the State Senate districts. Now it’s also having a special filing of its opinion in the case. Instead of a normal filing on a Monday or Thursday, the court today announced the opinion will issue tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.
When the court last month agreed to hear the writ petition on the merits, it set a schedule that the court said would allow “the filing of an opinion in this matter as early as the end of January 2012.” The justices are right on time.
