Supreme Court To Hear Potentially Monumental Abortion Case

Supreme Court To Hear Potentially Monumental Abortion Case

Abortion clinics are challenging Ohio's law in federal court, and the outcome of the Supreme Court case could affect the disposition of the OH case, said Case Western Reserve University law professor Jessie Hill, who works with the ACLU of Ohio.

According to a court order, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case of June Medical Services v. The justices will hear arguments October 15 on a lower court ruling that said the Financial Oversight and Management Board's members were appointed in violation of the Constitution.A church-state fight over a Montana tax-credit program that generates scholarship money for students who attend private schools.

On November 12, the Supreme Court will tackle another emotive case when it hears arguments over Trump's effort to end the "dreamers" program that protects immigrants brought into the United States illegally as children. Louisiana voters did away with the practice starting this year, but the court will hear from a Louisiana defendant who is serving a life term for killing a prostitute after being convicted by a 10-2 jury vote while the old rules were still in place.

Randall Marshall, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama, said he doubts Alabama's law will be the law that challenge Roe V. Wade. "This term, it's going to be harder for the court".

With Scalia and Kennedy having been replaced by Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, some onlookers think the results may be different for Louisiana.

On both sides of the abortion debate, people are watching to see what Roberts does now. He is essentially the court's new swing justice, a conservative who is closest to the court's center.

The Louisiana law was passed in 2014 but courts have prevented it from taking effect.

The new term might pose the sternest test yet of Roberts' stewardship of the court.

The justices return to the bench Monday with cases about whether states can abolish an insanity defense for criminal defendants and allow non-unanimous juries to convict defendants of some crimes.

The Supreme Court's deliberations will come right in the middle of the 2020 presidential campaign - and its eventual ruling will be the first meaty decision on the hot-button issue since Trump appointed Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, shifting the court's balance to the right. A federal court issued a temporary restraining order that month, allowing the provision to take effect but blocking enforcement while doctors tried to meet the requirement.

The court will on Tuesday dive into the issue of whether it is legal to fire someone due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was never authorized by Congress.

On Friday, though, the Court declined to summarily reverse the Fifth Circuit, and instead granted review of the entire case.

The court will likely render a decision by June.

But it's not clear the court will ever rule.

At issue is a state statute requiring doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. Gun-rights advocates are urging the court to keep the case and issue a ruling. Some Democrats and liberals are talking about structural changes to increase the size of the court or limit the terms of future justices. The Court ruled at the time of a vacancy caused by Antonin Scalia's death.

A Supreme Court ruling on abortion could play a massive role in shaping the presidential race.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his 52 Republican colleagues are pushing back against a Democratic push not to take up "political projects" like a new challenge to New York City's gun laws.

Election-year retirements are very unusual, and the two oldest justices, Ginsburg and 81-year-old Stephen Breyer, would not want to give Trump a third high court seat to fill.

In many ways, the nine justices are still settling into a new internal dynamic with two President Donald Trump appointees in as many years. She has kept up a steady stream of public appearances to signal that she is still here.
