Other issues were before the Supreme Court on Monday.
• The high court took on the question of whether a suspect must be told he has a right to have a lawyer present during questioning by police. The Florida Supreme Court said Miranda warnings should include disclosure that a suspect has a right to a lawyer not only before police questioning, but also during questioning. The Florida attorney general disagreed and appealed. The court will hear arguments this fall.
• It ruled that parents don't have to send their special education students to public schools before asking to get reimbursed for private school tuition. The justices ruled 6-3 that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act does not require public school attendance before parents of special ed students can ask to be reimbursed for a child's tuition at private schools.
• It refused to revive a lawsuit that former CIA operative Valerie Plame and her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, brought against former members of the Bush administration. A lower court last year threw out their lawsuit accusing Vice President Dick Cheney and other former high-ranking officials of revealing her identity to reporters in 2003.
• It agreed to determine the constitutionality of a federal law that permits sex offenders to be kept behind bars after they complete their prison terms. The court will hear arguments this fall.
