Pending US Supreme Court cases impacting local governments

The US Supreme Court has set all its cases for the 2013-2014 term, including a number of cases affecting local government. The cases involve issues such as Fourth Amendment searches, qualified immunity, and First Amendment speech, buffer zones for protests, invocations at council meetings, and rails to trails programs. The State and Local Legal Center, which files Supreme Court amicus briefs on behalf of the National League of Cities and other national organizations representing state and local governments, has compiled an overview on cases of interest to local government for 2014.
