Court Watch

The Supremes ruled that a part of Social Security checks -- 15% -- can be withheld to pay student loans.

They also heard arguments about a case that has received a lot of ink lately. They will have to decide if law schools that have anti-discrimination policies for employment recruiters must let military recruiters in to their job fairs. The feds claim they can withhold funding if they do not. All sorts of issues are tied up in this -- free speech, gay rights, privacy, disrimination in the military -- so it should be especially interesting to follow.

Preliminary analyses based on lines of questioning point to a decision in favor of the military.
