Supremes to Look at Ten Commandments

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear two cases on the constitutionality of displaying the Ten Commandments on government property. This is the first time they've agreed to examine the issue in 25 years.

The Court also announced in late September that it will accept an eminent domain case. It will decide "whether the Constitution allows the government to use eminent domain to take one person’s home or small business so a bigger business can make more money off that land and pay more taxes as a result," according to the IJ press release.
