The Court’s website now contains orders appointing amici to brief and argue two questions in the pending challenges to the Affordable Care Act.  Both amici are well-respected and experienced advocates at the Court.  H. Bartow Farr, III, a partner at Farr & Taranto, has been appointed to defend the Eleventh Circuit’s determination that the individual mandate provision is severable from the rest of the Act, while Robert Long, a partner at Covington & Burling, has been appointed to brief and argue the position that the Anti-Injunction Act bars the suit brought by Florida and other states to challenge the individual mandate.
