Supreme Court trying to find its way after Scalia
WASHINGTON - Two months, 31 arguments and 18 decisions since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, is the Supreme Court hopelessly deadlocked or coping as a party of eight?
The answer varies with the issue.
But arguments last week in the corruption case against a former Virginia governor show that there are high-profile cases on which justices from the left and the right agree more often than they don't.
There's also some indication that the court is trying to avoid division in an era of stark political partisanship and during a rollicking presidential campaign.
