With major cases ahead, the Supreme Court has added decision announcements to its calendar for this Thursday and Friday, in addition to the opinions already scheduled for next Monday, June 29. It is still unclear, however, which of the expected opinions will be handed down on each day. The Supreme Court could also add more days to the calendar if it so chose, though it typically completes its term by the end of June.
There are seven Supreme Court cases from this term that await opinions. Most anticipated are the justices’ decisions in the same-sex marriage case, Obergefell v. Hodges, and in King v. Burwell, where the court could invalidate the Obamacare subsidies for millions of Americans. However, the high court also is poised to announce notable decisions in a housing-discrimination case, an environmental protections case, a redistricting case and a challenge to states’ lethal injection practices.
