A huge THANK YOU to all communities members who took the time to attend the argument this morning.  It was a great show of support.

We know many of you listened in on the live stream and many others who could not listen-in have asked for an update of the argument.  Given our time constraints, we cannot answer each email individually, but you can listen to the argument here:

As predicted, the argument centered mostly on the timeliness of the challenge - specifically, whether Maryland could establish "reasonable grounds" for filing its legal challenge beyond the 60-day statute of limitations.  The court did ask a couple questions about the merits of the case, but definitely not a lot of in-depth questions.
