|16-149||Mo.||Mar 1, 2017||Apr 18, 2017||8-0||Ginsburg||OT 2016|
Holding: (1) Because contractual subrogation and reimbursement prescriptions plainly "relate to ... payments with respect to benefits," as stated in the Section 8902(m)(1) of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Act of 1959, they override state laws barring subrogation and reimbursement; and (2) the regime Congress enacted is compatible with the supremacy clause.
Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 8-0, in an opinion by Justice Ginsburg on April 18, 2017. Justice Thomas filed a concurring opinion. Justice Gorsuch took no part in the consideration or decision of the case.

A majority of the Supreme Court seems inclined to uphold Mississippi's 15-week abortion law, but the six conservative justices appear divided about whether to entirely overrule Roe v. Wade. @AHoweBlogger's first take from this morning's argument:
