I didn’t realize just how many big Supreme Court cases are to be decided this month. There are 7 big cases being argued, with cases on abortion, affirmative action, immigration, gerrymandering, and Sixth Amendment rights being among the list.

Opinions in so-called “blockbuster” cases are generally issued at the end of the term in June. This article is a couple weeks old, so along with the two mentioned in the article Wittman v. Personhuballah and Foster v. Chatman have been decided. For the three listed that haven’t:

Fisher v. University of Texas: SB coverage, oral arguments transcript, oral arguments audio

Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt: SB coverage, oral arguments transcript, oral arguments audio

United States v. Texas: SB coverage, oral arguments transcript, oral arguments audio

Which is why getting a justice more like Scalia than Kagan is so important.

None are as critical as last year’s Obergefell v. Hodges case. That case may be one of the factors that leads to a Second American Civil War.
