Supreme Court’s new term: Surveillance, hacking, sports betting—and cake, too – Ars Technica

Roberts, Justice Clarence Thomas, and Justice Stephen Breyer, back row from left, Justice Elena Kagan, Justice Samuel Alito Jr., Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and Justice Neil Gorsuch pose for a group portrait in the East Conference Room of the Supreme Court on June 1, 2017 in Washington, DC.

The Supreme Court’s 2017-2018 term begins today, and there are plenty of high-interest cases for Ars readers that are already on the docket or currently pending with the justices. The issues at hand range from surveillance, freedom of religion, and the definition of hacking to what constitutes an online threat and whether a federal law that bans sports wagering in most states—online and off—infringes on states rights.
