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. 

Briefly:

  • The Associated Press (via KRDO.com) 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.

A friendly reminder:  We rely on our readers to send us links for the round-up.  If you have or know of a recent (published in the last two or three days) article, post, or op-ed relating to the Court that you’d like us to consider for inclusion in the round-up, please send it to roundup [at] scotusblog.com.
