The Supreme Court’s next major case starts the day after the election

With Amy Coney Barrett poised to become the next Supreme Court justice, many Americans are wondering what — if anything — the outcome of the upcoming presidential election will mean for the highest court in the country. But the day after the election, perhaps even before a winner is declared, the Republican pick will decide a major case for the LGBTQ+ community. On Nov. 4, SCOTUS is scheduled to hear oral arguments in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, a cause brought by a taxpayer-funded, religious-affiliated foster care agency seeking to reject same sex couples as foster parents. The Third Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the lower courts, ruling in favor of Philadelphia, in April of 2019, but the Supreme Court granted a request for a writ of certiorari, or a review, of the decision.
