First Monday in October

And that means the opening of the new US Supreme Court term, although the court will not hear oral arguments today because it’s Yom Kippur – the first time the court has taken the holiday into account.

The case to watch this term is Tennessee v. Lane, in which two disabled defendents charge that Tennessee courtrooms are inaccessible to the disabled. George Lane, a defendant in a criminal case, was arrested for failing to appear when he refused to crawl up two flights of stairs.
