The Supreme Court took these actions Tuesday:
-- Agreed to decide whether a national policy that evicts public housing tenants for a single drug offense is too harsh. Critics say the policy punishes innocent family members for the wrongdoing of one resident.
-- Agreed to decide if a company should be forced to pay an illegal immigrant employee fired for supporting a union. The National Labor Relations Board had urged the court to let stand a ruling in favor of the fired worker.
-- Agreed to review whether people can still qualify for Social Security disability payments if they are able to hold a job within a year of suffering the disability.
