Stephen Maynard Caliendo addressed the Supreme Court returning for a new term, first in-person cases in over 18 months

U.S. Supreme Court justices took a step back toward normalcy on Monday, Oct. 4 on the first day of their new nine-month term as they conducted oral arguments in person for the first time in 19 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, holding a muted and polite session in a socially distanced courtroom.

Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, interviewed with FOX 32 Chicago, where he talked about the upcoming court term with key cases on abortion, guns and religion.

“Honestly, as a political scientist, I’m interested in the support that the Court has and the erosion that we’ve seen in public support for the Court among calls for progressives to pack the Court for Congress and the President while they have the power to add seats and more justices.”
