Argued: Schacht v United States - The Supreme Court will rule unanimously that it's unconstitutional to bar actors from wearing military uniforms as part of a skits or production if military authorities decide that the military is discredited.

The law in question states:

"While portraying a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps, an actor in a theatrical or motion-picture production may wear the uniform of that armed force if the portrayal does not tend to discredit that armed force."
