SCOTUS CASES IN JULY

Here are 8 Supreme Court cases the justices have yet to rule on

SCOTUS CASES IN JULY

The Supreme Court is taking an unusually long time to complete its term this year.

With decisions in eight cases still under wraps days after the justices would have typically cleared out its docket for the season.

The coronavirus pandemic can be partly blamed for the delay.

Already, the justices broke tradition in May by holding oral arguments over the phone and broadcasting them live as much of the country was under lockdown.

While the court has so far issued opinions in dozens of cases,.

Including several major ones last month dealing with LGBTQ rights, and abortion.


Chief Justice John Roberts notably sided with the four liberals, some closely watched ones have yet to be released.

One major case is Trump’s financial documents

For over three hours in early May over the telephone, the court delved into two momentous cases.

They will determine whether the House of Representatives and a New York prosecutor can subpoena Trump’s accounting firm and banks for his financial documents.

The justices focused on Trump’s effort to shield his documents.

But they also prodded the lawyers to look into the future and gauge how an eventual decision will impact the separation of powers and the White House’s broad claims of immunity.
