Supreme Court Acts in Cases on Black Lives Matter Protest, Inmate Forced to Sleep in Sewage

WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court on Monday threw out a ruling against a Black Lives Matter protest organizer who was sued by a police officer hit by a rocklike object hurled by an unknown demonstrator, sending the case back to the lower courts.
The court also ruled that correctional officers could be held liable for making an inmate sleep in sewage, and declined to review an appellate court decision allowing an antitrust case against the National Football League and DirecTV to go forward.
