Several Supreme Court opinions of great interest are likely to be announced next week.

As the Supreme Court looks to finish its term, it has already announced many opinions on this year’s cases.  However, several of the most anticipated verdicts are still pending.  This Tuesday, May 28, 2013, at 10 a.m., the Court is expected to announce several additional opinions.  During this court term, we at TeenJury have covered issues regarding affirmative action, gay marriage, and patent protections of human genes.  A decision in Fisher v University of Texas, which could alter the college admission process, may be the most pressing for our readers.  In fact, the Common Application, was used 2.5 million times last year by students applying to one of 488 participating colleges or universities.  While the essay prompts have already been released for the 2013-2014 year, the remaining application is not scheduled for release until August 1st.  Typically, the application asks questions about an student’s race or ethnicity.  It is uncertain if the Court will consider those questions to be unconstitutional.  For those interested, live blogging will begin on Tuesday at 9:30am at SCOTUSblog.
