Brief summaries of the claims raised in the four non-state lawsuits

My compatriot Eric Lightman has just completed a helpful summary of all the claims being raised in the four other lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of the ACA--that is, the lawsuits being brought by plaintiffs other than state attorneys general. And those claims really run the gamut, from those grounded in the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, to those asserting that Congress violated the Administrative Procedure Act, to those claiming that the means by which Congress enacted the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act violated the Congressional Budget Act of 1974. You can find Eric's summary here on our wiki site.
