Friday round-up

At ACSblog, Neil Kinkopf discusses the challenge to the availability of tax subsidies for individuals who buy their health insurance on an exchange operated by the federal government.  He concludes that, “[b]ecause the usual statutory meaning also comports with the overall structure of the statute and its purpose and intent, King v. Burwell will be a very easy case indeed – if the Supreme Court reads the law to mean what it says.”  In another post at ACSblog, Jeremy Leaming collects some of the articles and blog posts responding to the challengers. 


  • The Associated Press (via reports that Nebraska and Oklahoma are seeking to file an original action asking the Supreme Court “to declare Colorado’s legalization of marijuana unconstitutional.”
  • Move over, Ruth Baby Ginsburg – it’s Sonia Soto-Minor! Steve Klepper has the details (and adorable pictures) at the Maryland Appellate Blog.
