Many federal government workers are furloughed because of the government shutdown. But not the nine lifetime appointees to the US Supreme Court.
The Justices begin a new term today, as usual on the first Monday in October. And some of the most watched cases this year will be issues involving labor unions, campaign finance, and copyright law.
California Western School of Law Professor Glenn Smith joins us with some analysis of cases the high court will hear this term.
