Death With Dignity Act to be Reviewed by Supremes

Scotusblog is reporting that the Supreme Court has decided to review Oregon's Death with Dignity Act which permits physician-assisted suicide.  I am surprised that they decided to grant review and I really don't know what this means for the future of the Act.  It has always been controversial to some but the courts (thus far) have firmly upheld it.  [bm]
