CASE ENTRY

League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania v. Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Senate president pro tempore frivolously removes a state-law redistricting challenge to federal court, triggering emergency motions/hearing. The case is remanded back to state court within two days. Third Circuit: And the $29k in costs and fees awarded to the plaintiffs for that brief trip to federal court was completely reasonable, though the Senate president, sued in his official capacity, cannot be held individually liable for them. Sorry, taxpayers.
