After deciding three cases on Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court has only 14 cases left to decide this term.
The Associated Press has that tally, along with a look at some of the high-profile cases left to be decided. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog and the Los Angeles Times also list some of the most anticipated cases. They include:
• Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius. These cases challenge the health-care law’s requirement that corporate health plans include contraceptive coverage.
• McCullen v. Coakley. A Massachusetts law requiring a 35-foot buffer zone for abortion-clinic protests is challenged on free-speech grounds.
• Riley v. California and United States v. Wurie. The cases consider whether police must obtain a warrant to search cellphones seized during an arrest.
• National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning. At issue is the president’s power to make recess appointments during short breaks in Senate proceedings.
• Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA. The case considers the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate greenhouse gases from “stationary sources” such as power plants and factories.
• ABC v. Aereo. At issue is whether Aereo violates network copyrights when it uses miniature antennas to transmit TV programs over the Internet to its subscribers.
• Harris v. Quinn. Home health-care workers paid by Medicaid claim their First Amendment rights are violated by an Illinois requirement that they join the public-sector union or pay a fee to cover the cost of collective bargaining.
