-  FOX News reporter Kristen Fisher on the US Supreme Court 

 

The US Supreme Court 2016-2017 term is just getting underway with only eight of the nine seats filled and what many consider to be a four-four split between liberal and conservative justices. 

Jordan Lorence, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, has a long history with the court and joins Freedom Matters to give a preview of cases coming before the court this term, such as: Trinity Lutheran v.
