Between now and the end of June, when the court must decide all of the cases argued since October, the nine justices will issue a string of rulings on the viability of securities class action lawsuits, the legal rules for patenting software and the fate of online TV startup Aereo. Although the court still must decide such cases – protests outside abortion clinics and religious objections to President Barack Obama’s healthcare law – none is as important as the 2012 opinion that upheld the individual mandate of the healthcare law or the one in 2013 helping to pave the way for gay marriage. “There isn’t a singular blockbuster,” said Pratik Shah, a lawyer with the Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld law firm.
