The justices take the bench Monday for the start of their new term with important cases about campaign contributions, housing discrimination and government-sanctioned prayer already on tap. Abortion, contraceptive coverage under the president's new health care law and mobile phone privacy also may find their way onto the court's calendar. (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)
