The Supreme Court’s New Term

Hosted by

At yesterday’s opening session, the US Supreme Court declined to take up cases involving same-sex marriage. Was that a surprise—or not?

First, today’s arguments in the case of a notorious prisoner in Arkansas—a self-proclaimed Muslim jihadist who stabbed his ex-girlfriend. He says his religion requires him to wear a half-inch beard—contrary to the rules in state prison.
