Unusual start to new term: No arguments on Jewish New Year
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court is opening an unusual term in an unusual way.
The justices meet in public Monday for the first time since June with one seat empty after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. It's the first time in 25 years the court has been at less than full strength at the start of a term, on the first Monday in October as prescribed by law.
And the court will depart from its usual practice of hearing cases on its first day because of the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. Three of the eight justices are Jewish.
The court is expected to reject hundreds of appeals that accumulated over the summer, after adding eight cases last week.
Arguments are scheduled to begin on Tuesday
