Today, the Supreme Court hears arguments about (1) the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause and (2) when actions brought by a state fall under the Class Actions Fairness Act:
(1) Town of Greece v. Galloway [see our preview at http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/12-696]
- Does a town violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment by starting its board meetings with prayer?
(2) Mississippi v. AU Optronics Corp. [see our preview at http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/cert/12-1036]
- When is a state’s parens patriae action a “mass action” under the Class Action Fairness Act, and therefore removable to federal court?
