In a case whose outcome may be felt in the public schools, the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the status of a 94-year-old cross memorializing a Maryland county's World War I dead.

The Supreme Court said a lower court was wrong to rely on the vote of a judge who had died by the time his opinion in the case was released.

The court revives the suit of a Chicago school building engineer who alleges that his supervisor addressed him with a racial slur and other racially charged language.

In a case with implications for monetary penalties in the juvenile justice system, the court rules that the Eighth Amendment's bar against excessive fines applies to the states.

The justices turned down review of a Kentucky law that prohibits anyone to direct speech or conduct to a school employee that disrupts or interferes with school activities.

The justices will weigh Secretary of Commerce Wilbur L. Ross Jr.'s decision to restore a citizenship question, which could depress response rates and affect the allocation of education funding.

The court rejected a family's First Amendment challenge to a Maryland school district's lessons on the Islamic faith as part of a high school world history course.
