Washington, D.C. — Over the next several weeks, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide a series of cases that could have a lasting impact on the Constitution and the country. On Monday, June 8, the Center for American Progress will hold a panel providing analysis on what to anticipate during the final weeks of this critical Supreme Court term. Three major cases that remain undecided will likely define the legacy of Chief Justice John Roberts’ tenure in what has been called the U.S. Supreme Court “term of the century.”
The first, King v. Burwell, could gut the protections of the Affordable Care Act and send the health insurance marketplace into a death spiral. Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc. could threaten the protections of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 and make fighting discrimination in housing—and possibly all civil rights cases—far more challenging. Finally, in Obergefell v. Hodges, the justices could provide crucial protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, community by instituting marriage equality for all.
