Supreme Court opens its 2002 term denying cert in scores of cases, including the New Jersey election case (click here for the link to the order list, a 94-page PDF file). But the story's not over: there were potential standing and jurisdiction problems with the appeal from the NJ Supreme Court -- but a new federal lawsuit in NJ, brought by people who voted already, may give the courts the evidentiary record to make a definitive ruling on the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act claim -- and better yet, from the Supreme Court's perspective, to let federal courts decide those issues without the High Court's involvement, rather than replay another showdown with a state Supreme Court.
