Ohio Independent Deadline Case

Lawrence v Blackwell, the lawsuit challenging the March 1 petition deadline for Ohio independent candidates (for office other than president) is now before the U.S. Supreme Court (05-1089). That court will probably decide in May whether to hear the case. This is the first ballot access case set before the U.S. Supreme Court (for their decision on whether to hear the case) in over six months.

    That would make this the first case of the Roberts court, and the first for Justice Alito. Were there any cases in the pipeline that Chief Justice Roberts or Justice Alito have heard?
