Should Be Coming Up For Oral Argument Soon

     From the Weekly Journal:
On Feb. 4, 2019, Chief Judge Gustavo GelpĂ­ of the U.S. District Court of Puerto Rico ruled that U.S. citizens on the island are entitled to the same social security supplemental payments, or Supplemental Social Income (SSI), as citizens who reside in the mainland.
More than a year later, the federal government has not taken the necessary steps to ensure that all U.S. citizens have equal access to financial aid and government benefits. ...
The case of U.S. v. Vaello-Madero is currently before the Court of Appeals for the First Circuit of Boston. ...
     Could this case still be pending, probably at the Supreme Court, on January 20, 2021 when a new President may be taking office? I would guess that it will be. If so, it would be possible for the new administration to settle the case.
