ABC Inc. seeks to stop Aereo Inc. from streaming its copyright programs without permission or paying for the rights, SCOTUSBLOG.com reported.

-- Limelight Networks vs. Akamai Technologies, a patent infringement case.

-- United States vs. Clarke, an Internal Revenue Service case involving a summons of a taxpayer to provide information.
-- CTS Corp. vs. Waldberger, involving whether federal or federal law applies in clean-up of environmental wastes.
