Harris v. Quinn (2014)

Whether a union requiring a class of home health care workers—hired by the disabled person, but paid from state and federal funds—to pay union fees despite their abstaining from union membership violates their First Amendment rights of freedom of association, freedom of speech, and to petition the government for redress of grievances, as applied to the states under the Fourteenth Amendment.

SBA List v. Driehaus (2014)

Whether states can proscribe political advertisements from non-profit political advocacy groups if they determine that such advertisements are false.
