It looks as though the Supreme Court will hold off until the last minute of their 2011-12 term to release it’s ruling on some of its biggest cases.
One of the cases yet to see a ruling is the Arizona immigration law, SB1070. While it seems the justices have suggested they would uphold at least one section of the law, others are still in question. The pertinent part they seem willing to deem Constitutional is police checking the immigration status of people they stop for some other violation.
Another highly anticipated ruling is that of Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. That ruling is expected now in the last week of June and no one is quite sure what will come from that ruling as a myriad of theories have been put forth.
One more ruling that the Court is expected to release involves broadcast indecency, which some have said limits free speech. This involves the use of expletives over the air via various broadcasts. However, the Court did toss out fines and sanctions and appealed to the FCC to reevaluate their rules.
In addition there is the issue of juvenile sentences and the Stolen Valor Act. The juvenile sentencing regards whether or not juveniles should face life sentences without parole if convicted of homicide. The Stolen Valor Act makes it a federal crime to falsely claim to have received a U. S. military medal.
So it appears that we have at least another week to wait for some very important rulings from the nation’s highest court in regards to things that will have future implications for every citizen in the America.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
