Monday round-up

Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who was confirmed to the Supreme Court last week, will participate in her first oral arguments on Monday, as the court returns to the virtual bench for its November argument session. The justices will hear argument — by telephone, of course — in two cases involving relatively technical questions of statutory interpretation: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services v. Sierra Club, which is about the scope of an exemption under the Freedom of Information Act (read our preview here) and Salinas v. U.S. Railroad Retirement Board, which is about disability benefits for railroad workers (read our preview here). Before arguments begin at 10 a.m. EDT, the court will release orders from its Friday conference at 9:30 a.m.

Here’s a round-up of other Supreme Court-related news and commentary from around the web:
