Preview of the Upcoming Term of the US Supreme Court

The Congressional Research Service in Washington has prepared a Preview of Select Cases for the upcoming term of the US Supreme Court:
"The next Court term has the potential to be one of the most consequential in years."
"A full discussion of every case that the Court will hear during the October 2017 term is beyond the scope of this report (indeed, the Court has to grant certiorari to the majority of cases that will likely make up its docket for the upcoming year). But Table 1 provides brief summaries of the cases the Court has already agreed to hear during the October 2017 term, and many of the cases on the Court’s docket are discussed in existing or forthcoming CRS products. The majority of this report highlights four notable cases of the new term that could impact the work of Congress: (1) Carpenter v. United States; (2) Christie v. National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA); (3) Gill v. Whitford; and (4) Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission."
The highlighted cases deal with:
  • the warrantless collection of historical cell phone location data
  • New Jersey’s sports gambling prohibition
  • electoral redistricting and gerrymandering
  • states’ interests in enforcing their civil rights laws against the interests of those who object to same-sex marriage on religious grounds
