AARP Foundation Supreme Court 2023 Preview

 

 

Each October, the nine justices of the Supreme Court convene to do the work of interpreting the laws of the United States. And come summertime when this work is complete for the year, we are left with a series of decisions that shape not just the law of the land, but our lives.

The 2022-2023 term was no exception. The Court was at times intensely divided on issues like student loansaffirmative action, and First Amendment rights. More often, however, the justices decided cases by 6-3 or greater margins that crossed ideological lines, including in cases of critical importance to older adults.

In the upcoming term, the Court will again hear several cases affecting the lives of adults over 50. This preview describes those cases and contains AARP Foundation attorneys’ predictions about legal issues that may reach the Court in the future.

AARP Foundation will continue to do our part to ensure equal justice under the law for older adults. Foundation attorneys will continue to fight for and fiercely defend the rights of older adults in courts across the country, including the Supreme Court.
