As the political drama swirls over replenishing its ranks, the state Supreme Court opens a new session today poised to take on cases that could test the powers of the governor, determine the future of beach replenishment projects and clarify whether new technology in crime-fighting may violate privacy rights. The state’s highest court has two empty slots because of a fight between Democratic lawmakers and Republican Gov. Chris Christie that began in March 2010, when the governor did not reappoint Justice John Wallace Jr., the court’s only minority. This year the Senate Judiciary Committee rejected two of the governor’s nominees. One of the hot-button issues facing the court this term involves the governor. The court will determine whether Christie had the authority to dismantle the Council on Affordable Housing and transfer its responsibilities to the state Department of Community Affairs.

Louisville, Kentucky is home to seven historic landmark districts, including the nation’s largest Victorian neighborhood, but recent changes to the city’s 40-year-old historic preservation laws by the Metro Council have preservationists seeing an uncertain future. Citing concerns over accountability, public participation, oversight, and property rights, the council passed new rules giving the legislative body final say over all landmarks decisions and added restrictions to the petitioning process that initiates the landmarks review process. Now some fear that politics and potential corruption could erode the intent of the law and preservation groups are mulling legal action to reverse the changes. The contentious six-month fight was spurred by the four-year-old landmark designation of Colonial Gardens, a former beer garden built in 1902 alongside one of the city’s Olmsted parks. The designation stopped a proposed strip mall planned for the site, but the building remains vacant and deteriorating, splitting the neighborhood over its historic merits.
