“The State Executive Clemency Board (Scott and the Cabinet) … has a substantial interest in avoiding chaos and uncertainty in its election procedures, and likely should not be forced to employ a rushed decision-making process created on an artificial deadline now, just because a more thorough decision-making process could be employed later,” a majority of the appellate panel said. “We are reluctant to upset the system now in place --- particularly since the district court order creates so truncated a schedule --- when there is a good chance the district court’s order may be overturned, and the system would need to be changed still again, potentially re-disenfranchising those who have been reenfranchised pursuant to the district court’s injunction.” The News Service will have a full story later Wednesday.
