The Supreme Court's New Term Likely Won't Outdo The Last One

The Supreme Court is gearing up for a new term. The last term had several historic rulings, but this one might have some interesting cases.

The Supreme Court starts its new term Oct. 5.

While some cases are already on the calendar, the justices may add more.

But there are already some potentially big cases on the calendar. 

One case from the University of Texas centers on affirmative action. Abigail Fisher brought the suit in 2008 alleging the school discriminated against her because she was white. (Video via YouTube / Project on Fair Representation)

But it will be hard to outdo last term, which saw big rulings on same-sex marriage and the Affordable Care Act.
