The Supreme Court sides with Sen. Ted Cruz in his First Amendment challenge to a federal campaign-finance law that limits how and when candidates can recoup loans that they make to their own campaigns. The vote is 6-3 along ideological lines.

Cochran (a case about the power of district courts to hear challenges to the constitutionality of the SEC's administrative law proceedings).
