最高法院将于周四发布对该任期的最终意见. 这是两个主要的案例.

最高法院周四在 10 上午. ET 将在涉及投票权法案和政治捐助者披露的备受期待的案件中发布该术语的最后两个意见.

All eyes will also be on Justice Stephen Breyer, who during the final days of the Supreme Court session has written decisions preserving the Affordable Care Actbolstering student free speech, has been the subject of speculation over his future on the bench.
Here is a look at the last two cases where justices will deliver opinions.

    Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee

      The Supreme Court is considering two Arizona voting rules that the Democratic National Committee says violate the historic Voting Rights Act that prohibits laws that result in racial discrimination.
        One provision wholly rejects ballots cast in the wrong precinct. Another says that only certain persons — 家庭, 照顾者, mail carriers and elections officialsmay deliver another person’s completed ballot to the polling place.
        This is the most significant voting rights case the court has heard since 2013’s decision in Shelby County v. 持有人. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the 5-4 majority opinion effectively gutting Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, a provision that required states with a history of discrimination to obtain the permission of the federal government or the courts before enacting new laws related to voting.
          Since that decision, challengers to voting restrictions have increasingly turned to Section 2 of the law, that holds that no voting regulation can be imposed thatresults in a denial or abridgement of the right of any citizen of the United States to vote on account of race or color.Democrats fear the new conservative majority on the court will now weaken Section 2. Conservatives, on the other hand hope the court will give the states more power to pass what they consider ballot protection provisions.
          The case comes as Republican state legislators across the country are also moving to pass laws that restrict voting access. State legislators have introduced 389 bills with restrictive provisions in 48 states as of May 14 并超过 20 new laws restricting voting have been enacted this year, 根据 Brennan Center for Justice.

          Dark money and donor disclosure

          At issue is a 挑战 brought by conservative non-profits Americans for Prosperity (a Koch-affiliated group) and the Thomas More Law Center, to a California regulation that requires charitable organizations that solicit donations to disclose a list of their contributors to the state attorney general.
            The groups say they want to keep their donors secret and that the state has not shown a compelling reason for the rule. They argue it will chill contributors from coming forward for fear of harassmentin violation of the First Amendment. Although the information is supposed to be confidential, the groups point out that the state has made inadvertent disclosures.
            作为回应, California argues that the groups already have to file the same data with the IRS and the state needs the information as it tries to combat fraud related to charities. Three other states — 纽约, New Jersey and Hawaiihave similar laws.
