United States Supreme Court


On Today's Your Call we’ll talk about the court’s ruling allowing companies to refuse to provide contraceptive coverage based on their religious rights; and the decision last week finding buffer zones around abortion clinics in violation of First Amendment rights. We’ll also recap some of the other decisions made involving public sector unions, cell phone searches, and greenhouse gas emission regulations. What do you want to know about these cases and decisions? How will US law and society be affected by these decisions?
