The Supreme Court released the calendar for its November sitting today. On November 12, the justices will hear oral argument in what promises to be one of the biggest disputes of the term: the challenge to the Trump administration’s decision to terminate the program known as “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” or “DACA,” which allowed young adults who were brought to this country illegally as children to apply for protection from deportation. On the same day, the justices will also hear – for the second time – oral argument in a lawsuit brought by the family of a Mexican teenager who was shot by a U.S. Border Patrol agent across the U.S.-Mexico border.

The justices did not schedule New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, the challenge to the city’s ban on transporting a licensed handgun outside city limits, for oral argument. The case was granted in January and is now the oldest case not yet slated for oral argument, but last week the city told the court that the case is moot as a result of changes to both city and state laws.

During the sitting, which begins on Monday, November 4, the justices will hear a total of 10 hours of oral argument in 12 cases over five days; there are no arguments on Monday, November 11, which is a federal holiday.

A full list of cases scheduled for oral argument follows the jump.

---Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California, Trump v. NAACP and McAleenan v. Vidal (Tuesday, Nov. 12): Whether courts can review the decision to end DACA; and, if so, whether the decision to end DACA was lawful.
