The reason they didn't take the Pennsylvania case was very simple -- it's up to STATE courts to interpret STATE law. In this case, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court interpreted the Pennsylvania Constitution. The U.S. Supreme Court doesn't get to second guess a state supreme court on that court's interpretation of its own state constitution, any more than a state supreme court can second guess the U.S. Supreme Court on its interpretation of the U.S. Constitution.
