FILE - In this Feb. 13, 2016, file photo, people stand on the steps of the Supreme Court at sunset in Washington.

A First Amendment clash over public sector unions left the justices deadlocked last year after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. But union opponents have quickly steered a new case through federal courts in Illinois and they plan to appeal it to the high court on Tuesday, June 6, 2017. (AP Photo/Jon Elswick, file)
