The Supreme Court concluded its first week of oral arguments Wednesday by hearing arguments in Google v. Oracle, which involves the copyright status of certain types of computer code, and Ford Motor Co. v. Montana Eighth Judicial District Court, which involves the extent of personal jurisdiction over out-of-state defendants. The justices will return to the (telephonic) bench next week. On Wednesday night, the court received an emergency request from the Trump administration, which is seeking to block a lower court’s order requiring the 2020 census count to continue through the end of October.
