Briefly:

  • In The Atlantic, Andrew Cohen looks at the big cases and issues that lie ahead in 2014, including the Court’s decisions in cases involving abortion clinics and campaign finance and the prospect that the Court will once again take on same-sex marriage.
  • Jeremy P. Jacobs of Greenwire and E&E Publishing reports on the Mountain States Legal Foundation, the legal advocacy group that – among other things – represents the petitioner in this Term’s Marvin M. Brandt Revocable Trust v. United States.
  • At the Scholars Strategy Network, Rick Hasen explains why, in the wake of last year’s decision in Shelby County v. Holder, striking down a provision of the Voting Rights Act, 2014 will be a “pivotal year” for decisions about voting rights.
  • At Harmless Error, Luke Rioux looks back at the facts and oral argument in Bond v. United States and concludes that “[t]he tea leaves suggest that the court might be leaning Bond’s way.”
