Upcoming: At 10 a.m. ET, the eight-member U.S. Supreme Court will meet to issue opinions on up to eight remaining cases for the term. Three cases are considered to be major decisions: a lawsuit filed by Texas student who alleges race-based discrimination after being rejected from the University of Texas, a constitutionality test for two major anti-abortion rights provisions in Texas, and the 26-state challenge to President Obama's executive orders on immigration. We'll be covering the proceedings and will have live video of reaction outside the court.
