Court watchers are zeroing in on several cases with big impact potential. Abortion rights and gun rights are two cases getting the most attention, mainly because conservative Justices are in the majority on the court.

Dimino, JD., Professor of Law, Widener University Commonwealth Law School and Michael Moreland, JD., Ph.D., Professor of Law and Religion and Director of the Eleanor H.
