The U.S. Supreme court issued two rulings today. The Justices ruled that some of President Obama’s recess appointments were unconstitutional, but did not say that all such appointments were outside the law. The court also said that states may not enact so-called buffer zones around facilities that perform abortions.
The Supreme Court term traditionally wraps up on June 30 each year. The widely-anticipated Hobby Lobby case about mandating contraception in health insurance coverage has not yet been released.
