Minnesota Supreme Court Decision on Coleman / Franken Case Coming Next Week, Reportedly Unanimous

It now appears that the Minnesota Supreme Court decision involving the disputed election contest between Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Al Franken could be resolved next week, according to Politics in Minnesota.  The decision would reportedly be unanimous.

While our sources on the impending Minnesota Supreme Court ruling on the U.S. Senate election contest were impeccable, our latest intelligence points to a decision sometime next week.

Here’s what we picked up from sources inside the Minnesota Judicial Center: The opinion will be unanimous; the opinion is overly long and is being edited, circulated, re-edited, circulated,etc.; and that there’s nothing worse than a Minnesota Supreme Court “gang edit.”

They botched the prediction that a decision would come down today, as the above excerpt notes.  So take this report with a grain of salt for now.

Update (6/25): NPR reports that the decision isn’t coming this week either.

Update (6/30): The Minnesota Supreme Court has ruled unanimously in favor of Democrat Al Franken.
