The United States Supreme Court is back in session today.
A number of hot topics are on the docket -- limits on campaign contributions, housing discrimination, and whether the president can fill key positions without senate confirmation.
Other important appeals may be added over issues like gun control, abortion, mobile phone privacy and Obamacare.
The last term saw the court strike down key provisions in the voting rights and Defense of Marriage acts.
