From the Document: "The federal courts issue hundreds of decisions every week in cases involving diverse legal disputes. This Sidebar series selects decisions from the past week that may be of particular interest to federal lawmakers, focusing on precedential decisions of the Supreme Court [hyperlink] and the courts of appeals for the thirteen federal circuits [hyperlink]. Selected cases typically involve the interpretation or validity of federal statutes and regulations, or constitutional issues relevant to Congress's lawmaking and oversight functions. Some of the cases identified in this Sidebar, or the legal questions they address, are examined in other CRS [Congressional Research Service] general distribution products.
