On the traditional first Monday in October, Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. announced from the bench that he was pleased to open a new term of the U.S. Supreme Court. It is a term that is already taking shape with high-profile cases and contentious issues. Law.com’s new Supreme Court argument report provides argument highlights — as well as an unofficial tally of justice behavior and a quote of the day.

First up on Monday morning: the consolidated cases of Washington State Grange v. Washington State Republican Party and Washington v. Washington State Republican Party. At issue is a state election system in which candidates may self-select a political party preference on the ballot without proving an affiliation with, or nomination from, that party. Voters can vote for any candidate, and the two candidates who receive the highest number of votes in the primary, regardless of party affiliation, advance to the general election.
