Supreme Court Insider (sm)

All Rise!

The U.S. Supreme Court begins its 2012 session today.  Arguments are scheduled Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.   The Court will hold its first conference on Friday, October 5.

Affirmative action, Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, voter identification, redistricting, and gay marriage are some of the controversial issues the justices will be addressing this term.  The tone of the session will likely be set next week when the court hears a challenge to the affirmative action program at The University of Texas at Austin.  Justice Kagan has recused herself from the case.  If all conservatives vote as a block, a 5-3 ruling striking down or modifying the program could affect higher education admissions in the future.

More to come…..
