The Supreme Court kicked off the October 2017 term!


Featured NEWS:

Supreme Court makes its first decision based on arguments.

On November 8, 2017 the Court issued its first full decision, a unanimous one, in Hamer v. Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago.

To remind you of the case: Charmaine Hamer had sued her employer for discrimination. After losing, she had 30 days to file an appeal. The trial court gave her an extension to file her appeal, but the appeals court did not honor it because it said it was bound by a procedural rule.

The Supreme Court reviewed whether the rule was "jurisdictional," meaning it could not be worked around.

See our Argument Explainer for more background on the case.
