The Nail Biting Begins

leave a comment »

With arguments over affirmative action, gay marriage, Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, and patents over human genes already presented, the nail biting among court observers has certainly begun.  If history is a guide, the most controversial decisions will be released in late June before the Court adjourns.

This term’s cases will have a huge impact on social and political issues.  Affirmative action in higher education could be outlawed, the Defense of Marriage Act could be declared unconstitutional, minority voting rights under Section 5 could be scaled back and human patenting could be prohibited.

In the coming weeks,  SupremeCourtInsider.com will be analyzing the cases for the public’s review.

Stay tuned.
