The order list released Thursday by the U.S. Supreme Court did not include any grants for the seven same-sex marriage cert petitions filed.

The court will issue more orders over the next weeks, Bloomberg News reports. According to SCOTUSBlog, if the court denies the seven marriage petitions, it would release marriage rulings for 11 more states.

Some of the other grants on today’s order list (PDF) include:

Rodriguez v. U.S., which focuses on whether reasonable suspicion is enough for police to go beyond drug-sniffing dogs and questioning in traffic stops.

EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch, an employment-discrimination case in which a Muslim teen was denied a sales job because the company said her hijab didn’t fit the store’s “look policy.”

Baker Botts LLP et al v. Asarco LLC, which SCOTUSblog predicts will have a significant influence in federal litigation fee awards.

Tibble v. Edison International, a case involving ERISA plan fiduciaries.
