This term’s Supreme Court plenary docket encompasses a wide range of highly significant constitutional and federal statutory issues. At stake are issues such as fundamental individual constitutional rights, separation of powers, the rights of criminal defendants, and the interpretation of important voting rights and environmental and antitrust statutes. How will the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett impact the Court’s decisions? Will Chief Justice John Roberts’ role change? Will Justice Brett Kavanaugh become the new “center"?
