BRIEF OF AMICI CURIAE, American Civil Liberties Union & American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, IN OPPOSITION TO RELATOR’S PETITION FOR MANDAMUSAlso, for reference, here's the state's filing with the Supreme Court and the Third Court ruling they're appealing.
The Supremes could now make their decision at any time. Though perhaps I'm engaged in wishful thinking, I'd put the odds at about 6-5 in favor of rejecting the state's writ of mandamus - perhaps even a little better than that, but with a lot of room for error.
What's your prediction on the outcome? What will happen if the state wins its appeal? What will happen if they lose?
