Supreme Court Issues Opinions

Three cases were determined on Monday.

For the First time since 1997, the Supreme Court issued their opinions for the 2020 term in the month of July. The Court issued their decisions in the cases of Colorado Dept. of State v. Baca, Barr v. the American Assn. of Political Consultants, and Chiafalo v. Washington.

The court voted 8-0 in the case of Colorado Dept. of State v. Baca based on their judgment in the Case of Chiafalo v. Washington where they also voted unanimously 9-0. The court determined that laws that require electoral college voters to vote according to the laws of the state they are voting for are allowed under the constitution.

Barr v. the American Assn. of Political Consultants had the court split 6-3, ultimately deciding that an exemption in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 that banned robocalls except for calls collecting government debt was in violation of the First Amendment. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would lead the Justices of the Court to make good decisions in future cases.
  • For the Court to have wisdom on which arguments to hear in the future.
  • That the results of these rulings would allow a more perfect union to form.
