U.S. Supreme Court In Flux Could Decide Planned Parenthood Funding

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider numerous important cases in the fall term that begins Oct. 1, including one that could determine whether Arkansas Medicaid recipients can seek care in a Planned Parenthood clinic. Decisions will come from a court in flux with only eight justices and without its swing vote in retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Those observations came from Theresa Beiner, dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Law, and John DiPippa, dean emeritus. The two spoke at the Clinton School of Public Service Monday, the same day that the eight justices were meeting in their annual Long Conference to consider which cases to hear in the upcoming term. The first of those cases are expected to be announced Thursday.    MORE
