If the law is struck down altogether, rolling back the work implemented to date will be complicated
By Julie Barnes and Meredith Hughes
On Monday, April 2 and Wednesday, April 4, 2012, the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) held a two-part webinar series discussing the oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court last week on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Part I focused on analyzing the substance of the arguments, while Part II focused on the impact of the Court’s decisions on the health care system. For background on the arguments, check out our posts here from March 26th, 27th, and 28th.
Part I of the series featured Elizabeth Papez, a former U.S. Supreme Court law clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas; John Elwood, a partner at Vinson & Elkins, and Lyle Denniston from SCOTUSBlog, a legal journalist who has been covering the U.S. Supreme Court for fifty-four years, with Mark Hall, a Professor of Law at Wake Forest University, moderating.
