We only have about two weeks left in the current Supreme Court season (or "term" as they call them). Some important employment law cases are still out there, and we should get some news as early as today:
- UTSMC v. Nassar (SCOTUSblog page): Recently argued, but we're down to the end of the season so we should get a decision soon. This case will address whether Title VII retaliation claims can be "mixed motive" or instead require "but for" causation.
- NLRB v. Noel Canning (SCOTUSblog page): This case hasn't even been accepted by the Supreme Court yet, but they have a conference scheduled for June 20th to discuss it. The smart money is on SCOTUS granting certiorari to decide whether President Obama's NLRB "recess appointments" were constitutional.
UPDATE: The Supreme Court didn't address any of this today (Monday, 6/17/2013) and the next scheduled opinion release date is Thursday. In other words, from this Thursday through next Thursday we should get all of the above (that's a lot to cram into one week!).
