After weeks of low-profile rulings in technical cases, the justice June 17 dropped two of the most anticipated cases of the term.
The court handed progressives a 7-2 win by once again upholding Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law, while pleasing conservatives with a unanimous win for a religious group in the latest clash between LGBT rights and religious freedom.
