Decision was 5-0 in favor of Dem Al Franken over GOPer Norm Coleman in the MN Senate race, according to sources.
More as we get it.
UPDATE (David): From Rick Hasen:
The bottom line is that the Court says that Franken is entitled to an election certificate, but there is no direct order to the state’s governor to sign one. We’ll see what the governor does, if Coleman does not concede, as he well may at this point. If not, the opinion is not final until the period for rehearing ends (see the final footnote of the opinion). That’s a ten day period, enough time to file an emergency stay application in the U.S. Supreme Court. It would go to Justice Alito, now circuit justice for the Eighth Circuit.
The full opinion is here.
ANOTHER UPDATE (David): According to this, Coleman will be giving a press conference at 4pm Eastern, and Franken will be doing one at 5:15.
