The chronological case summary says a case was “transmitted on transfer.” Does that mean the Supreme Court is going to decide the case?

No. An appellate docket entry indicating a case was "transmitted on transfer" signifies that the case bundle has been physically transported from the Clerk's Office to the Supreme Court Administration Office. This usually occurs when the period for regular briefing of the transfer petition has concluded.

Once a case has been transmitted on transfer, the Supreme Court will consider in due course whether to grant or deny transfer and will announce its decision either in an order or an opinion.
