Supreme Court Looks to New Term, with Questions
Hawke, Catherine
Social Education, v83 n5 p265-268 Oct 2019
The 2018-19 Supreme Court term concluded with a number of unanswered questions: What is the fate of the "citizenship question" on the 2020 census? What will the developing Supreme Court jurisprudence of Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh look like in the near future? How will Chief Justice Roberts continue to evolve as the "swing" justice? In the shadow of all these unknowns and uncertainties, the term that starts in October 2019 looks to be filled with fireworks. The upcoming term will likely address some hot button political topics, including the status of DACA students, LGBTQ rights, gun laws, and healthcare. Before digging into those cases, this article explores the most recent term for trends that can provide insight into how the Court might rule on issues waiting in the wings.
