The U.S. Supreme Court has announced on its website that “In the event of a loss of appropriations, the Court will continue to conduct its normal operations through October 4. The Court building will be open to the public during its usual hours…”

The Supreme Court also announced that in case a further lapse of appropriations happened beyond October 4 the Court would notify the public about its schedule in the light of such events.

The concerns are obvious as the U.S. government heads towards its first shutdown in 17 years and remains without any signs of compromises or fruitful negotiations between opposing groups of lawmakers. Even though both Republicans and Democrats continue to insist that they do not want to shut down the government, both sides seem resigned to the seemingly inevitable.

No one seems ready to accommodate the other side and change their stands.

While Democrats are not budging from their position of implementing the Affordable Care Act from this week, the Republicans, led by John Boehner remain steadfast in their demands to delay implementation of the healthcare law by a year.



At stake are the livelihoods of more than 800,000 federal workers who may lose their positions if the Congress fails to approve a stopgap measure before the funding expires. However, that has not happened until now.

Federal government services and other services dependent upon funding may have to stop working. While Republicans are depicting Democrats to be inflexible and forcing the shutdown, Democrats are painting Republicans in the same manner.

Only, services like national parks or service cells of federal agencies may be closing down, even if for a temporary period.

The real implications are not yet understood, and at least the U.S. Supreme Court would be running on schedule, but there is sure going to be a domino effect on backlogs in every federal department.
