NPR Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on the new session of the U.S. Supreme Court that begins today. The court will hear a variety of cases this session dealing with the war on terror, such as the Bush Administration's refusal to release the names of immigration detainees. Also on the list are constitutional tests of the new campaign finance reform law, affirmative action in college admissions, and a gay rights case.
