Washington Primary System Case Appealed to Supreme Court

The State of Washington and the Washington State Grange have appealed the Ninth Circuit Court's ruling against I-872, the initiative of the people, authored by the Grange, establishing Washington's non-partisan "top-two" primary. The system was struck down by the district court and the Ninth Circuit after complaints by the Republican, Demcoratic, and Libertarian Parties. All the associated documents are here (see the bottom of the page for the petitions for certiorari.). The documents don't seem to have dates on them, but the page says it was last updated January 5, so I suppose that may be the date of the Republican Party's response to the Grange, which is the last document. I'll try to keep track of the case here as it progresses (though I may be a little late, as it doesn't get reported in the media and there's no RSS feed on the documents page).
