"Hot topics" panel at AALS

This is just a quick note for readers attending the AALS meeting in San Francisco this week. On Friday morning, from 10:45 to 12:15 (at the Hilton Union Square), there will be a "hot topics" panel addressing the ACA litigation. The panel includes several people who have been involved in the cases. Specifically:

* Professor Randy Barnett (Georgetown)

* Professor Gillian Metzger (Columbia)

* Professor David Oedel (Mercer)

* Dean Erwin Chemerinsky (University of California Irvine)

In addition, Professor Barnett will be debating Professor Orin Kerr (George Washington) about the constitutionality of ACA 1501(b) over lunch Friday at the Federalist Society AALS event, from 12:15 to 1:30.
