The Supreme Court of the United States’ (SCOTUS) October session started yesterday, October 3rd. I was looking forward to this term, since there are a lot of interesting and important cases coming up on the Court’s docket. There are 48 cases on the Court’s docket thus far. There are, however, plenty of important cases being petitioned to be taken by the court. One of the most newsworthy is the ObamaCare lawsuits that are petitioning to be heard in front of the SCOTUS. So far, the case has not said whether or not it would be willing to take that case.

I have to say, I love listening to oral arguments. Last year, the Supreme Court started posting their oral arguments of the week each Friday on their website. I would suggest you check them out, if you are so interested, here: http://www.supremecourt.gov.  This was a big deal for the Supreme Court. The (mostly conservative) Justices have always disliked media in courtrooms, even disallowing cameras in lower courts (re: the Prop 8 California gay-marriage case). So, when the Court started releasing oral arguments the week they were argued, I was estatic! In the past, they have released important cases’ oral arguments the day they were released, but the rest of the lesser-known cases’ arguments were not released until after the term was up.  It’s nice to be able to listen to them the week they are argued.

Anyways, for more information on the Court’s new term, read updates, and get analysis on the Court’s case, check out my favorite Supreme Court blog, http://www.scotusblog.com.
