The U.S. Supreme Court agreed on June 19 to hear arguments in the following cases. CONSTITUTIONAL LAW Must adult bookstores denied city operating licenses be allowed to continue in business while they go to court and appeal the denial? A Wisconsin Court of Appeals said no. City News and Novelty v. City of Waukesha, No. 99-1680. The justices were told that the state court ruling “has the potential for long-term suppression of expression prior to any type of judicial review.” A bookstore was denied a renewal license because city officials said that it allowed minors to loiter at its premises and let patrons engage in sexual activity inside video viewing booths. EMPLOYMENT LAW Can state law override someone’s decision on who, after his or her death, will receive his or her life insurance and pension benefits under a plan governed by a federal pension-protecting law? The Washington Supreme Court said yes. Egelhoff v. Egelhoff, No. 99-1529. The state high court said that the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act does not pre-empt a state law that revokes spouses’ status as beneficiaries after a divorce. At issue is a dispute over benefits by survivors of a man whose ex-wife still was listed as his beneficiary when he died. Her status was challenged under state law by the dead man’s children from a previous marriage.
