The judges will meet for a private conference on Friday to consider which cases, if any, should be included on the court record. Petitions to be debated include two consolidated cases on the legality of Medicaid’s work requirements, a challenge to a Kansas law requiring applicants to demonstrate U.S. citizenship when registering to vote, and a lawsuit against President Donald Trump for violation the first change when he blocked critics on Twitter.
