 Key Legal Decisions


House v Burwell - In November 2014, the US House of Representatives has filed a complaint against the Obama Administration asserting that the President acted illegally in implementing the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The litigation is currently on-going. (US Supreme Court [11/21/14])

King v Burwell – Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Congress made premium tax-credit subsidies available nationwide on both state- and federally-run exchanges. (US Supreme Court [6/25/15])

Burwell v Hobby Lobby -
Under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), closely-held for-profit corporations cannot be required by the ACA to provide group health plan coverage of certain kinds of contraceptives that the corporations' owners find religiously objectionable. (US Supreme Court [6/30/14])

National Federation of Independent Business v Sebelius -
Provisions under the ACA, that require most Americans to buy health insurance (the individual mandate) and expand the scope of Medicaid, are valid exercises of Congress's power under the taxing and spending clauses of the Constitution. The federal government, however, cannot coerce individual states to participate in Medicaid expansion by threatening to withdraw all of their Medicaid funding. (US Supreme Court [6/28/12])
