Citing the ongoing coronavirus public health crisis, the US Supreme Court on Friday cleared its calendar for April, extending an already historic delay of major legal cases, several of which have big implications for the 2020 election. The announcement, coming in a statement by court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg, adds 8 cases to the 13 postponed in March. They include challenges to debt collector robocalls; the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act; and state efforts to ban so-called “faithless electors,” who cast Electoral Votes in presidential elections contrary to their state’s popular vote. In the meantime, the justices are continuing to draft opinions in several landmark cases that could be released as soon as Monday. Among them are expected rulings on Trump’s cancellation of DACA for young undocumented immigrants and federal protection against employment discrimination for LGBT Americans.
