The Justice Department has filed a petition seeking a review of a decision by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, continuing a travel ban from six mostly Muslim countries. This petition for certiorari sets the stage for a constitutional showdown--whether a presidential initiative is lawful. The Supreme Court normally grants review when a federal appeals court holds a presidential initiative to be unconstitutional and the government has asked the Court to expedite its decision on whether to review. Thus the Court could make its decision before it breaks at the end of June. It takes four votes by the Justices to grant a petition for certiorari and, if granted, arguments would be heard in the Fall.

Many people assume it is safe to drive after taking prescription pills. However, just because they come from your doctor doesn't mean you can safely drive. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tracks the risks of more than 400 drugs, many of which are legal prescriptions. While illegal drugs still make up a substantial number of drugged driving cases and crashes, medicine prescribed by your doctor is still implicated in a number of crashes. If you're driving after taking a prescription, you could still face charges of driving while ability is impaired.
