From the start, 2018 was a wild year for politics. President Trump tweeted nonstop about any and everything in the political world, from his legal entanglements to his beefs with foreign leaders. People left the White House in record numbers. And the Supreme Court issued major rulings, from voting rights to sales tax. IDK if Trump or his administration are planning on turning over new leaves in the new year, but it seems almost certain that we won't have an ordinary year when it comes to the nation's highest court. That said, let's take a look at four decisions the Supreme Court will rule on in 2019 — because you should know about them.
Of course there are more than a few cases heading to the highest court, and this year will be particularly interesting to watch because the Supreme Court gained a new justice: Brett Kavanaugh. After a vicious confirmation battle (marred by accusations of sexual assault, which he vehemently denied), the judge was confirmed to the court on Oct. 6. For many issues, like Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established a woman's legal right to abortion, Kavanaugh's stances are unclear. However, it's suspected that he'll bring the court to a conservative majority, which result in some rather, um, unique decisions. So let's take a look at what we're up against, shall we?
