In September, the usual sadists filed amici curiae. Yesterday, the supreme court denied writ of certiorari. Martin v. Boise can be cited in the 9th.
My guess is the roberts court lacked the necessary arguments to strike down the precedent, because it could be too embarrassing, while the judicial branch demands to revisit Amos 5. It could also be considered a punishment for the 9th, encouraging the poorest of the poor to migrate to the 9th. Eventually another circuit could develop a case that the roberts court can use to reestablish sadism in the 9th, and everywhere the country.
Sundown laws were struck down. Vagrancy laws were struck down. Car habitation laws were struck down. Functionally, nothing really changed. The sadists simply developed new PR tactics.
Rule of law is a farce.
