The lack of court action leaves in legal limbo the question of whether Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill can remain in his elected position as state government’s top lawyer under the suspension that took effect Monday.

The Supreme Court refused to consider Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb’s request last week for a ruling that would settle that question.

Here is the court’s order:
