This essay looks at leading cases set for the Supreme Court's next term, at some cases the Supreme Court chose not to hear, and at other events, such as a possible recusal by Justice Ginsburg in a disputed election case, that may set the agenda for the coming term. In addition, it looks at the diminished role of the United States Supreme Court as an appellate body in relation to the Courts of Appeal and the state courts.
