Medicaid suit, ministerial exception cases on tap for Court’s first week

DC Dicta is taking a weeklong hiatus. But we will return on First Monday – Oct. 3 – ready to cover the shiny new Supreme Court term.

Some the cases on tap during the first week of oral arguments include:

Douglas v. Independent Living Center of Southern California – the first argument of the term – which considers if Medicaid recipients and providers may sue under the Supremacy Clause to enforce a federal law they say preempts a state law reducing reimbursement rates;

Reynolds v. U.S., which asks whether an individual can challenge the constitutionality of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act and the legality of the Interim Rule implementing that law;

Howes v. Fields, which considers whether Mirada warnings are required before jail or prison inmates are questioned about issues unrelated to the cases for which they were incarcerated; and

Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC, which presents the question of whether  the ministerial exception, which prohibits most employment-related lawsuits against religious organizations by employees performing religious functions, apply to a teacher at a religious elementary school bringing an ADA claim.
