Pennsylvania Suit at Core Challenges Legislative Process

Here's an interesting case, Common Cause of Philadelphia v. Pennsylvania, and an article about it. The dispute arose out of a 2005 pay raise to Pennsylvania legislators and judges. Common Cause challenged it, claiming that the former CJ of Pennsylvania had conspired with the legislators to pass the bill "in secret" without hearings, etc.

Standing has been raised as the principal challenge by the defendants, as reported in the article, so we may never know "how much, if any, process is due" in the legislative process to citizens. interesting case.
