Huge Cases Awaiting the Supreme Court

Fox News
  • The 5 biggest Supreme Court cases awaiting rulings
  • Kennedy v. Bremerton School District
    • High school football coach Joseph Kennedy lost his job after he insisted on reciting post-game prayers on the 50-year-line, despite his employer, the Bremerton School District, instructing him to stop.
  • Biden v. Texas
    • This case centers on the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols, commonly known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy under which migrants seeking asylum in the US had to Stay in Mexico.
    • The crux of the case is whether the federal government can use discretion in carrying out the program or if, as Texas and Missouri are arguing in their lawsuit, the policy is needed to comply with federal law that says migrants cannot be released into the U.S. because the country lacks resources to detain everyone.
  • New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen
    • In possibly the biggest Second Amendment case before the Supreme Court in more than a decade, the justices are poised to decide whether New York’s process for obtaining a license to carry a concealed handgun is overly restrictive. The current rules require applicants to show “proper cause” for why they need to carry a firearm, and the government can exercise discretion in determining whether someone has satisfied that requirement. The result is that it is extremely difficult to obtain a license.
  • West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency
    • At issue is whether the Environmental Protection Agency has the power to issue sweeping rules that could overhaul industry practices and the country’s electricity grids to address climate change.
  • Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization
    • The case came about after Mississippi passed a law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, blatantly going against the standard set by Roe that prohibited bans prior to fetal viability – understood to be at about 23 weeks. The ensuing litigation now puts the Supreme Court in a position to review whether a pre-viability ban should be allowed
    • The anticipation for a ruling in this case has already led to protests outside the Supreme Court and the homes of several justices, as well as an attempted murder charge against a man who allegedly plotted to kill Justice Kavanaugh
