Back to the Second Circuit. The case, Muntaqim v. Coombe, may be heading back to the Second Circuit. The Court had denied rehearing en banc in October. However, nine judges said they would reconsider if the Supreme Court denied certiorari, which the Court has done. The case involved the issue of whether a provision of New York Election Law, which disenfranchises persons currently in prison or on parole can be challenged under the Voting Rights Act. The order denying rehearing, along with concurrences and dissents can be found here. The original panel decision, which affirmed the dismissal of the action, can be found here. Thanks to SCOTUS for alerting us to this.
