The justices take the bench today for the start of their new term with important cases about campaign contributions, housing discrimination, government-sanctioned prayer and the president’s recess appointments already on tap.

Abortion, contraceptive coverage under the new health care law and cellphone privacy also may find their way onto the court’s calendar.

The court announced it will operate normally at least through the end of this week. The justices are hearing six arguments, including a challenge to limits on campaign contributions.
