New Supreme Court term begins; Kagan to recuse from dozens of cases

Washington (CNN) – Noisy protests at military funerals, immigration reform and violent video games are among the issues on the Supreme Court's docket as the high court begins its new term Monday.

The term also marks the debut of Justice Elena Kagan on the Supreme Court and the first time three women will serve on the nine-justice panel.

Roughly 52 appeals are currently on the high court's schedule. About another two dozen are expected to be added in coming months.

But Kagan, 50, will recuse herself from at least 24 cases already on the docket. That means she will not sit in oral arguments or vote on the outcomes.

    Great pick Obozo, an absentee justice. Kinda like Chicago municipal employees that are covered by the SEIU, AFSCME and ATU contracts. That is probably where he got the idea, pay people not to work. He does love the people who don't work that are supported by the government, makes them dependent and very suceptible to the Democrat liberal agenda.
