On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear the nine oral arguments on its late-May calendar.

Among the cases on tap are Castellanos v. State of California, a challenge to the Uber and Lyft sponsored initiative that classifies app-based drivers as independent contractors instead of employees (see hereherehere, and here), and John’s Grill, Inc. v. The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc., about possible insurance coverage for COVID pandemic losses (see here).

The arguments will be live streamed. Opinions in the cases should file by August 19.

Because of the oral arguments, the court will not be conferencing (also here) this week and there will be a double conference next week.
