Court decides immigration case, Thursday for health care

June 25, 2012 by Scott Bomboy


The U.S. Supreme Court will wait until Thursday to issue its health care decision. The Arizona immigration case has been decided.

The big decision on Monday was the Arizona case. Many of the key provisions of the Arizona law were invalidated, but local officers will still be allowed to check for immigration papers.

On Monday, the Court also declined to hear an appeal on the Citizens United campaign funding case and it also found that juveniles can’t be sentenced to life in prison without parole.

At the end of the session, the Court said Thursday would be the last day of the term.

The last remaining big cases are health care reform and the Stolen Valor case.
