The ruling returns the case to lower courts, with no clear prospect for when it might ultimately be resolved. The 7-2 outcome is at least a short-term victory for Trump, who has strenuously sought to keep his financial records private. apne.ws/c9MX0VC

Big cases, Justice Thomas talks, and a possible toilet flush: Here are our takeaways from the Supreme Court's recent arguments by telephone: apne.ws/jRuUe7C
Here is our story on today's arguments, from @shermancourt. apne.ws/7JiUqTO
The Supreme Court has finished its sixth day of telephonic arguments, the last it has scheduled. The chief justice ends argument as he always does, by saying: “The case is submitted.”
“I’m going to vote for Frodo Baggins,” Justice Clarence Thomas said in a hypothetical question naming the character from “The Lord of the Rings” as his preferred candidate. Thomas and his #SCOTUS colleagues are hearing phone arguments about presidential electors.
The second case before #SCOTUS today involves Colorado elector Micheal Baca. In 2016, he voted for John Kasich rather than Hillary Clinton, who won the state's popular vote. Baca was removed as an elector as a result. He and two other electors sued.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor is hanging up the phone. She's recused from the second case because of her friendship with Polly Baca, one of the presidential electors involved in the case. More here. apne.ws/QK6YakN
Time for a stretch? #SCOTUS has finished hearing its first case of the day. The second case will begin shortly. If you’re not listening live, you can at this link. link.apne.ws/PXJkjt2
Purcell is one of several attorneys who have been making telephone #SCOTUS arguments from the West Coast, where a 10 a.m. EDT argument start means it's 7 a.m.
Washington State Solicitor General Noah Purcell is making a #SCOTUS argument. Purcell previously argued against President Donald Trump's travel ban. Read about him here: apne.ws/cJH3WiE
The first attorney arguing in today's cases is @Harvard_Law professor Lawrence Lessig. Lessig briefly sought the 2016 Democratic nomination and called for presidential electors to support Clinton because she won the national popular vote four years ago.
If you followed #SCOTUS arguments on any of the past 5 days, you know how things will go today: The justices ask questions in order of seniority, after Chief Justice Roberts goes 1st. apne.ws/D4GCmlN
The first case before #SCOTUS today involves three Washington state electors who in 2016 voted for Colin Powell for president rather than the state's vote winner, Hillary Clinton. They were fined $1,000. Read more here: apne.ws/RPjhNfs
This is your 30-minute warning. It’s 9:30 a.m. Eastern, which means #SCOTUS is now getting the attorneys who will be arguing today’s cases on the line. Phone arguments begin at 10 a.m. and are scheduled to last two hours. Listen live here. apne.ws/MfAYUNn
Today, 32 states and Washington, D.C., have laws restricting electors' votes. However, most (19 plus D.C.) don't attach specific consequences to breaking the law.
Some trivia relevant to today's #SCOTUS case: In 1915, Oregon became the first state to require presidential electors to pledge to support the nominee of the electors’ party.
AP will have live streaming audio of today’s two #SCOTUS arguments about whether presidential electors are bound to support the popular vote winners in their states or can opt for someone else. You can listen live starting at 10 a.m. Eastern at this link. apne.ws/2Gj6JyP
#SCOTUS arguments are scheduled to last two hours today. Don’t be surprised if things run long. On Monday and Tuesday, arguments were scheduled to last two hours but lasted more than three.
The Supreme Court is hearing phone arguments today in two cases about whether presidential electors must support the popular vote winners in their states or can opt for someone else. A decision is expected ahead of the 2020 election. apne.ws/IiWk8oj
