The Federalist Society of Orange is honored to have Professor Josh Blackman join us on Wednesday, May 7th. Professor Blackman will deliver:
AN UPDATE ON THE LEGAL CHALLENGES TO THE
AFFORDABLE CARE ACT (A.K.A. OBAMACARE)
There are approximately 91 cases still pending challenging various aspects of the Affordable Care Act. Arguments in the case of HobbyLobby v. Sibelius were just heard in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has issued an injunction in the case of LittleSisters of the Poor v. Sibelius. Halbig v. Sibelius, another important challenge, is pending in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. On May 7th, we will hear Professor Josh Blackman review the status of these cases questioning the constitutionality of many aspects of this troubled statute.
Josh is an Assistant Professor of Law at the South Texas College of Law who specializes in constitutional law, the United States Supreme Court, and the intersection of law and technology. He is the author of Unprecedented: The Constitutional Challenge to Obamacare. Josh is also the founder and President of the Harlan Institute, and of FantasySCOTUS.net, the Internet’s Premier Supreme Court Fantasy League. Josh clerked for the Honorable Danny J.
