Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, wife found guilty in gifts scandal

Editor's note: Former Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell’s corruption case will go before the U.S. Supreme Court today in the last oral arguments of the top court's 2015 term. He and his wife, Maureen, were found guilty two years ago of accepting more than $175,000 worth of gifts and favors from businessman Jonnie Williams. McDonnell will not have to report to prison for his two-year sentence unless he loses the appeal. We'll be watching for updates in the case. - Rebecca

US immigration reform debate

Editor's note: President Obama's plan to allow some 4 million undocumented immigrants to stay in the U.S. via executive action goes before the eight-member Supreme Court today, starting at 10 a.m. ET. A split decision will be a victory for Texas, where a federal judge put a stop to the plan, and the 25 other states that joined in opposing the executive action. However, states and cities may continue to push for the changes, setting off what immigration lawyer David Leopold called “a judicial mess.” A ruling is expected by June, which would give the president just seven months to execute the initiatives before leaving office. We'll bring you updates here. - Rebecca
