WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments again after a summer break.

Justices are still mourning the death of their colleague Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last month. They’re also working in the midst of a pandemic that has forced the court to drastically change the way it conducts business.

A week after the presidential election, the court will hear arguments in a bid by the Trump administration and Republican-led states to overturn the Obama-era health care law. The court is also confronting cases related to the election and to religious rights.
