A hearty welcome to anyone visiting the ACA litigation blog. Our goals here are quite modest:

1. To serve as a repository for all the official documents filed in the two lawsuits filled by state attorneys general challenging the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, P.L. 111-148, as amended;

2. To provide news updates concerning any developments in the litigation as they occur;

3. To provide links to commentary, opinion pieces, and academic articles related to the litigation; and

4. To offer occasional commentary and legal analysis on the various claims at issue.

On the right, you will find links to the significant briefs, memoranda, and orders that have been filed thus far in the two cases, as well as the two statutes at issue. At the top (as a tab), you will find a link to our wiki, which will serve as a comprehensive repository for all the filings, articles, and blog posts related to the lawsuits.

Thanks for visiting. And if you have any questions or comments, you can contact us through this site.
