Supreme Court Faces an Array of Divisive Cases

Among the new cases the justices granted last week was a challenge to a state law requiring voters to provide photo identification in order to cast a ballot. The justices also took up a highly visible death penalty case, a challenge to the particular lethal injection method that is used in most states.
