The Real Housewives of the Supreme Court are back in session, here’s what’s up first

SCOTUS ‘s new term starts Monday so it’s only fitting that we discuss the 5 biggest issues they’re set to rule on over the course of the new term. The now right-leaning SCOTUS is expected to dramatically rule in many of the cases as they have done before so we will do our best to keep our American readers updated to follow long as the future of America continues to be reshaped.

  1. Same sex marriage / LGBTQ+ rights

Gay rights are back on the docket on this season of The Real Housewives of the Supreme Court. In one corner, we have the conservative majority that unless they’re preparing to surprise America that they actually have an ounce of decency — are likely to gut gay rights even further. This time the case involves Colorado-based website designer Lorie Smith who wants to expand her business to include as one may have guessed wedding websites. Except Smith claims that she has the right to exclude gay people from getting service from her simply because they’re gay and such violates her religious rights. The problem is that she messed around and found out quickly because Colorado ‘s anti-discrimination law makes this point invalid. Smith is essentially asking the court to grant her the right to discriminate against gay people.

2. An ugly battle over an Andy Warhol copyright is coming to head and the implications for the art world likely could be profound.

Many are probably wondering why Andy Warhol is making the news but hold on we have you covered. A battler over an image he created for artist Prince is making headlines because the copyright for it has fallen into question. Warhol’s estate is essentially seeking to repo the copyright and get it back however the implications of such could be profound. Numerous sources point out that losing the suit means others likely will almost immediately attempt to blatantly copy the image.

3. A couple is finding out that their selfish ways have made the brunt of internet criticism and jokes.

A while back an Idaho couple attempted to build a house near the lake area of the town they’ve in. However, without a permit and such to do so much is illegal and a violation of the Clean Water Act. For context here folks, this couple claims that the Clean Water Act (the literal act that demands and ensures drinking water for everyone and everything remains clean) is a violation of their rights. Losing the case would essentially mean that thousands of acres across the nation that may be along wetlands are now in jeopardy of you guessed it man’s selfishness and greed. Those wetlands would risk the chance of then becoming home to home(s) thereby eroding clean water and the atmosphere that actually houses you know like actual living marine species.

4. If you’ve ever needed a reason to avoid Alabama outside of the great food, never fear we have your reason and depending on how they rule the consequences are dramatic.

In this case, the Voting Rights Act is again on the chopping block as white GOPers and lawmakers aim to disenfranchise an entire state of Black people simply because they’re Black. This lawsuit, involves the state of Alabama which is asking a court to all but throw out the only district in the state that has a Black majority. A ruling for the state would in terms of voting and racial discrimination claims (for voting) essentially wipe half of Alabama off the map. The ruling would make it much harder if not impossible to make a formal complaint that someone was discriminated against for having voted in an election. Alabama ‘s initial attempts ran afoul of federal law and they are seeking the court’s permission to overrule the feds in favour of outright discrimination.

5. Affirmative Action (why colleges ask you your race during the admissions process in more obvious terms) is on the chopping block here’s what to know.

If this sounds like a repeat of the prequel that came before modern times, it is because the previous bench ruled numerous times over the course of 20 years that Affirmative Action must stay in place. This bench is however much more conservative and pro-white than the least. That could dramatically alter that way this law looks in the future.
