Re: Good stuff
@Broadway0474 Yes, to the 1st question. Cases still can go to the SC. But, they can not issue any rulings if they are split 4-4. In that instance, the case goes back to the Court of Appeals and held what they've decided in the first place.
Also yes, to the 2nd question. This is a quote from LA Times:
"The case, which will be heard in the magistrate's courtroom next month, will then go before a federal district judge. Apple has until Feb. 26 to file its initial arguments in the case.
If appealed, the case will be heard by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and possibly the U.S. Supreme Court."
So, I guess we need to wait till the 26th, to see how the case will proceed.
