U.S. files its opening brief in Florida v. HHS

The Department of Justice has filed its brief for the appellants in Florida v. HHS in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. (This is actually one workday early, as the brief was not due until Monday.) As in Thomas More Law Center v. ObamaVirginia v. Sebelius, and Liberty University v. Geithner, the name at the top of the counsel list is that of Neal Kumar Katyal, Acting Solicitor General.

You can access the United States's brief here.

The next deadline in the case is a week from Monday, April 11 today, April 8, when amici curiae briefs in support of the United States are due.
