Supreme Court

NPR's Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on the Supreme Court decisions handed down Thursday. The court ruled five to four that a Cleveland program that provided vouchers to low income families to send their children to private schools is constitutional. The court also ruled that students who participate in extracurricular activities like chess or band can be required to undergo random drug tests. In addition, the justices struck down state laws that prohibited candidates for judicial positions from voicing their opinion on issues during campaigns.
