Even according to Justice Amy Coney Barrett, one of three Trump appointees, the court did not have to address the complex question of whether federal law was the exclusive vehicle for enforcing Section 3, but Barrett called on his colleagues to focus on the aspects that were agreed upon to reduce the temperature of the political conflict taking place in the country.
