Supreme Court New Term

FILE - In this June 27, 2012, file photo law enforcement officers set up a perimeter controls in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on the eve of the expected ruling on whether or not the Affordable Care Act passes the test of constitutionality in Washington. The Supreme Court new term, which starts on Monday, Oct. 7, 2013, may be short on the sort of high-profile battles over health care and gay marriage that marked the past two years. But several cases ask the court to overrule prior decisions, bold action in an institution that relies on the power of precedent. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)
