The U.S. Supreme Court reconvened on Monday for its fall term. We check in with U.S. Supreme Court watcher Lisa McElroy about the major cases that will come before the court, including:
- Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, a case about affirmative action in college admissions
- Evenwel v. Abbott, a case about whether to count registered voters or total population when redrawing Congressional districts
- Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a case about unions and contract negotiations
We’ll also talk about possible cases regarding abortion, and religious exemptions for birth control under the Affordable Care Act.
