Rodriquez v. 32nd Legislature of the Virgin Islands, 17-1518

In consolidated actions involving an elected official's qualifications to serve as a member of the Virgin Islands Legislature, the district court's judgment is affirmed where: 1) as to the Removed Action, defendant does not have standing to appeal the district court's order because he was a prevailing party, and there is no meaningful relief to grant him; and 2) because a judicial determination about whether defendant is qualified to serve as a member of the Virgin Islands 32nd Legislature would infringe on the separation of powers between the Virgin Islands legislative and judicial branches, the Federal Action is no longer justiciable.
