But the justices refused to hear the appeals, leaving the lower court ruling in place. Quote The brief court order noted that three of the court’s conservative justices, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch, would have thrown out the appeals court decision. Chief Justice John Roberts and new Trump appointee Brett Kavanaugh were both recused from the case. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
