U.S. Supreme Court Adds Only One Case to Docket


When the Supreme Court of the United States opened its new Term last week, the Court heard oral argument in 9 previously scheduled cases but did not grant review in any new cases. This week, the Court will hear oral argument in 5 previously scheduled cases and it issued its first opinion of the Term, which was a per curiam ruling that sent a criminal case back to the lower courts for the second time for resentencing. But the Court granted review today in only one new case. Today?s grant increases to 54 the total number of cases on the Court?s docket for oral argument and decision this Term.

See full bulletin for the question that the Court has been asked to decide in this case.
