Moderator: Gwen Ifill. With court-watchers everywhere on the lookout for a possible retirement, the Supreme Court handed down consequential rulings in the final days of this year's session. Decisions handed down included such controversial matters as affirmative action and Internet censorship. Linda Greenhouse of the New York Times and Joan Biskupic of USA Today explain the ramifications of the decisions. Also trying to beat a summer deadline, Congress is hard at work on legislation to create a prescription-drugs benefit for Medicare recipients.
