The Supreme Court’s 2015 term was marked by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and cases involving several hot button issues – abortion, capital punishment, racial preferences, religious liberty, public sector unions, and President Obama’s immigration “reform.” When the justices return for their 2016 term with an 8-member court, they will hear challenges involving the Voting Rights Act and redistricting, regulatory takings, the Establishment Clause and state Blaine Amendments, and the President’s ability to temporarily fill vacancies in federal agencies, among others. The Supreme Court will add even more cases to its docket in the coming months.
Paul Clement served as the 43rd Solicitor General of the United States and has argued more than 80 cases before the Supreme Court. Carter Phillips has also argued more than 80 cases before the Supreme Court during his time as an Assistant to the Solicitor General and in private practice.
