What is the Supreme Court thinking? Ask the Monitor


The US Supreme Court is the crucial third branch of American government. In its recently completed term, the Court ruled on a number of significant cases -- and also appeared to shift in a more conservative direction.

What do you think about recent rulings? Will Sonia Sotomayor be confirmed -- and will that alter the Court in a significant way? Is the Court tilting to balance the Obama White House and Democrat-controlled Congress? How do recent rulings affect you?

Ask Warren Richey, the Monitor's Supreme Court reporter, those and other questions at 1 pm (EDT) on Thursday. Monitor editor John Yemma hosts the “Talk to the Editor” webcast and will be joined by national news editor Cheryl Sullivan, who oversees Washington coverage.
