Rivas said Thursday that he wouldn’t be surprised if the case eventually goes to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“To me, this has all the earmarks that the Supreme Court of the United States takes really seriously,” he said, noting that he believes there would be “a pretty high likelihood” that the U.S. Supreme Court would hear it.

“From my point of view, there are six other states that have unconstitutional rules like the state of Minnesota,” Rivas said. “To have the U.S. Supreme Court rule [for Final Exit] would invalidate all of them. I would be very happy about that.”
