Update: From Shannon Minter (Legal Director for NCLR) - The petition will go to Justice Thomas, who can either grant or deny it himself, or refer it to the whole court. Thus far, each Justice has referred these requests to the full court, which can either grant or deny the stay extension requested by the state.
Stay tuned for more information as we receive it!
