The Section’s Supreme Court Teleconference Series continues March 5, 2015 from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. EST with a discussion on King v. Burwell, a challenge to the Administration’s policy on the availability of subsidies through the federal health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act. On March 4, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for the case, which has attracted a significant amount of media attention because of its political and health policy implications. The issues before the Justices turn largely on questions of statutory interpretation and agency discretion, perhaps informed by notions of federalism and the separation of powers.
The Section’s teleforum will discuss the Justices’ questions, the parties’ arguments, and their likely ramifications. Confirmed panelists include Josh Blackman, assistant professor at the South Texas College of Law, and Simon Lazarus, senior counsel at the Constitutional Accountability Center. Adam White of the Manhattan Institute and Boyden Gray & Associates will moderate the discussion.
