    SCOTUS opens momentous term Monday, October 2

    Supreme Court Opens ‘Momentous’ Term on Monday
    by Pete Williams

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court returns to work Monday facing a blockbuster docket, as it roars back from last year's unusually low-key term.

    Objections to same-sex marriage, state regulation of sports betting, the privacy of cellphone users and limits on political partisanship dominate the court's agenda.

    "There's only one prediction that's entirely safe about the upcoming term," Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said at Georgetown University's law school late last month. "And that is, it will be momentous."

    The court was to hear a showdown over President Trump's travel ban, but the courtroom argument scheduled for Oct. 10 was canceled after the White House issued new visa restrictions on Sept. 24. On Thursday, lawyers for both sides will tell the court what they think should be done with the challenges to the president's authority to issue the executive order.

    Here are some of the issues up before the highest court in the land this term...

    It's definitely going to be interesting. I follow the Court even in less exciting years, but I admit it's a lot less interesting when the docket is full of patent cases or ERISA cases or more niche issues.

    But the real fireworks will come if Justice Kennedy retires at the end of the term.
