The Supreme Court returns today and it’s a busy term already.

More than three dozen appeals are already on the docket with another three dozen expected in the coming months.

Some topics the justices could take up include issues such as same-sex marriage, affirmative action, abortion rights, and further litigation over President Obama’s health care reform law.

The caseload for the term is usually settled by February, with the term effectively ending in late June.
