This weekend marks a landmark day in the Supreme Court’s history: a unanimous court in 1954 ended a policy of segregation in public facilities it had endorsed in 1896.
As expected, a deeply divided United States Supreme Court heard arguments on Tuesday about status of same-sex marriage, and again Justice Anthony Kennedy is the focus of attention.
Lyle Denniston, the National Constitution Center’s literacy adviser, looks that an interesting argument posed about next week’s same-sex arguments at the Supreme Court: that the cases shouldn’t be heard at the moment.
Sometimes, cases not accepted by the Supreme Court can be as interesting as those accepted for arguments, and on Monday, the court refused to change lower-court decisions in deer hunting and fish pedicure cases.
