WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court's justices have reserved their most anticipated rulings for the next two weeks, with cases that could legalize same-sex marriage nationally and gut President Barack Obama's health care law still in the pipeline.
There are just seven cases left to be decided. Those causing the most anxiety include King v. Burwell, which could eliminate Obamacare's health insurance subsidies for 6.4 million people in 34 states, and Obergefell v. Hodges, which could bring marriage equality to all 50 states.
Also on the docket is a case concerning whether disparate impact claims can be heard under the federal Fair Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination in home-selling and financing. The court will also decide on challenges to the Obama administration's environmental rules, Oklahoma's lethal injection protocol and Arizona's independent redistricting commission.
The court will next release decisions on Thursday, with subsequent decision days likely.
