SCOTUS conservatives poised to dominate new term

(CNN) - The first Monday in October marks the new term of the U.S. Supreme Court, featuring the first African-American woman on the bench.

Topping the docket is an Affirmative Action case involving minority admission programs at Harvard and the University of North Carolina.

Before her death, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she thought the issue had settled permanently.

Not only that, like Roe v Wade, the new conservative-leaning justices, appointed by former President Trump, may be ready to break precedent again.

In fact, court observers wonder whether more than 40 years of Affirmative Action precedents could be at risk.

During the new term, the Supreme Court will take up major disputes on voting rights, free speech, and gay rights.
