Under the shadow of an unprecedented, unprincipled and chaotic confirmation process for a new justice, not to mention the election, the pandemic and a president in the hospital who casts doubt on the transfer of power , the Supreme Court begins its 2020-2021 term on Monday.
As usual, several high-profile cases and emergency petitions are on the court register, regarding the Affordable Care Act, Voting Rights, LGBTQ Equality, Immigration, and President Donald Trump’s Border Wall , among other questions.
But of course, it’s not business as usual. Oral arguments will take place over the telephone, widely open to observers. All cases due to be heard in October were postponed from last spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And of course, only eight judges will be on the call. Here is an overview of the issues.
