The case of Senator Sandra Morrison v. President Katniss Everdeen was the last case of the year for the Panem Supreme Court. And, of course, the result was eagerly awaited considering how many appeals were filed with varying results. The nine justices, including Chief Justice Sean Wheeler, presented the response at exactly 11:00 A.M.
In the case of Senator Sandra Morrison v. President Katniss Everdeen, we, the Supreme Court of the Republic of Panem, rule in favor of the defendant President Katniss Everdeen. There is insufficient evidence to prove any sort of electoral disruption during the most recent election. Also, the Court rules that the District 14 Land Purchase Act will be upheld under the Constitution of the Republic of Panem.
Upon the announcement, Senator Morrison, who was visibly enraged, stormed out in the middle of the Court’s ruling. She had filed the case in the court system once the Panem Electoral Commission had thrown out her complaint over election irregularities. In the particular lawsuit, the Senator from District 9 charged that the election was disrupted in several locations, that the President was corrupt, and that the District 14 Land Purchase Act was unconstitutional under the Constitution of the Republic of Panem.
The President declined to comment on the ruling, stating that “the outcome was expected.”
This clears the path for the new House, Celine Oswald, and President Everdeen, to all be inaugurated in two days. Planning for the ceremonies was still occurring despite the case.
