The Supreme Court’s ruling last June was only the end of the beginning as far as Obamacare litigation is concerned. Myriad lawsuits unrelated to the individual mandate have continued and — following Nancy Pelosi’s advice to dig deeper into what’s in the law — others have been filed based on new developments. Issues range from employer mandates to the constitutionality of Chief Justice John Roberts’s health insurance nonpurchase tax, from infringement on religious beliefs to a separation-of-powers challenge against the Independent Payment Advisory Board. We’re even starting to see lawsuits regarding the implementation of the law, as a host of agencies promulgate rules that often go beyond even the legislation’s expansive text. We will bring the lawyers leading two of these cases here to discuss them — one of whom is an intellectual godfather of a fascinating challenge to new IRS regulations. Please join us to learn what we can expect from this new round of Obamacare litigation.
