OTHER CASES The details



Published: Wed, February 23, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



In other developments at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, the court:

Heard arguments in the case of residents of a working-class neighborhood in New London, Conn., trying to hang onto homes which the city wants to take for a private economic development project under the power of eminent domain.

Rejected a challenge to its landmark ruling legalizing abortion, sidestepping a highly charged political debate. Without comment, justices declined to hear the appeal from Norma McCorvey, the woman once known as "Jane Roe." Her protest of Texas' abortion ban led to the 1973 Roe vs. Wade ruling establishing a constitutional right to abortion.

Agreed to consider whether meat-processing plants must pay their slaughterhouse workers for the time it takes to change into protective clothing and walk to their work stations.

Said it will decide whether parents or a school board has the burden of proof in showing whether a disabled child's educational plan was adequate under federal law in an administrative hearing.

Declined to review the constitutionality of a state law banning the sale of sex toys, rejecting an appeal that said consumers have a right to sexual privacy.

Decided not to review whether the parents of a teenager killed in the Columbine High School shootings can back out of a settlement with the gunmen's parents and others.
