Closely watched cases, including a challenge to Pennsylvania’s death penalty and the disciplinary proceedings against Penn State’s former general counsel Cynthia Baldwin, are set to kick off the state Supreme Court’s fall session, which is set to begin today in Philadelphia.

The justices are scheduled to hear arguments in a total of 17 cases during its three-day oral argument session. Along with the death penalty challenge and disciplinary proceedings, the seven-member court is expected to hear argument on a range of topics, including the availability of unemployment benefits for Uber drivers and whether the rule of capture applies to fracking.
