Supreme Court to Consider Cases on Discrimination, Redistricting, and Judicial Elections

As the U.S. Supreme Court gets ready to start their session on Monday, October 6, 2014, The New York Times reports that the justices will hear arguments from cases around the country about housing and employment discrimination, redistricting, and judicial elections.

The court will hear a case from Texas that will seek clarification on whether claims under the Fair Housing Act require proof of intentional discrimination. From Arizona, the court will hear a case about redistricting and decide the fate of an independent commission created by Arizona voters in 2000. And from Florida, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case on judicial elections that challenges bans on personal solicitations of campaign contributions by candidates for judicial office.

The court will continue to add cases in coming weeks.
