The new Supreme Court term doesn't begin until Monday, but it got its unofficial kickoff yesterday, as the Court released orders from this week's "long conference," granting cert in eight new cases.
Lucky for us, they're eight pretty interesting cases. The disputes include questions over immigration law, the educational rights of children with disabilities, immigration and "crimes of violence," credit card fees, and attorney misconduct. There's even an Indian Law case titled Lewis v. Clarke. Here's a quick preview of the new additions.
