Before the November argument kicks off, I should point out a few fascinating oral arguments from the October sitting that are available on the Court’s website (or in a zip file at the end of this post):

Hosanna-Tabor v. EEOC

  • Whether the ministerial exception to the ADA applies to a parochial school teacher.
  • Douglas Laycock (petitioners), Leondra Kruger (federal respondent), Walter Dellinger (respondent)

Golan v. Holder

  • Whether Congress may remove works from the public domain and give them copyright protection.
  • Anthony Falzone (petitioners), Solicitor General Donald Verilli (respondents)

Florence v. Board of Freeholders

  • Whether a prison may conduct blanket, suspicionless strip searches of all new inmates.
  • Tom Goldstein (petitioners), Carter Phillips (respondents), Nicole Saharsky (amicus)

You can get a zip file with the argument from all three cases here.
