Pacific Legal Foundation files amicus brief in Virginia v. Sebelius

The Pacific Legal Foundation--joined by Matthew Sissel, Americans for Choice in Medicine, and the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence--has filed a cert stage amicus curiae brief in Virginia v. Sebelius (No. 11-420). The brief argues (1) that the Fourth Circuit's decision that Virginia lacks standing to challenge the individual mandate conflicts with rulings from the Second, Third, Fifth, and D.C. Circuits, and (2) the Court's decision in Massachusetts v. Mellon has caused confusion and needs to be clarified.
