I don't believe Planned Parenthood was even a party in any of these cases, so I'm not sure how important the decisions would have been anyway.

I believe the point of contention here involved the legal standing of a plaintiff to file a lawsuit over these Medicaid funding cuts.

What made it seem almost obvious that the Supreme Court would take up the case is that a different Federal court in a case involving another state (Arkansas) came to the exact opposite conclusion -- meaning the Supreme Court has apparently left standing two opposing decisions in different cases.

You are correct. This was a standing case, and a denial of Cert doesn’t establish a precedent and certainly isn’t a “decision.” This is CNN propaganda and “concerned” “conservatives” are spreading it.

Ding Ding... Winner winner, chicken dinner. What the case was about vs what people thought the case was about. Bring an appeal that challenges the court’s ability to perform the state legislature’s function in assigning budgets of state funds that come through federal hands, and I betcha the result would be much different.

One wonders if this is a technical ruling or not it would appear to me as such
