WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Supreme Court is meeting today to issue its final three opinions of the term, including defining Americans' right to own guns.

The challenge to the ban on handguns in Washington D.C. is the biggest case left on the court's docket. It also is expected to resolve disputes over a campaign finance law and contracts negotiated during the Western energy crisis in 2001.

The justices won't return to the bench until October 6th, the start of their next term.
