High court open for business

Washington (CNN) - The U-S Supreme Court will not let a hurricane stop it from opening on time Monday, despite the early arrival of Hurricane Sandy to the Washington, DC area.

The court announced it will keep to its schedule of public sessions in the morning. Two important, hour-long oral arguments will be held in the courtroom– one dealing with a privacy challenge to the government's secret domestic surveillance program; and another over whether copyright protections extend to books and other "intellectual property" produced overseas and then sold in the U-S.

    Yay, perhaps while they are in session they will define books as people and afford them 1st AM privilege too ?

    Vote out democrats. and ring back Brownie to run FEMA.
    He has learned a lot since Katrina.. every thinking person knows New Orleans was an accident New Orleans caused.

    Republican engineering eliminates science, for a more spiritual and business approach to prophets and profits.

    Save America from Obama, this could be the end for the country.

    the court as it now stands is a joke. Just what we need more conservitive judges. They passed the super pac law which is ruining this election and will ruin this country. If mittens gets in it will only get worse and women will suffer. Because they will reverse Roe V Wade.

    Good! It isn't hitting DC directly so it's some water and wind. Glad to see SOMEBODY in this country still has some toughness and doesn't let their world be ruled by some wind and rain. Their work is too important.
