Join Georgia State Law professors Eric Segall and Erin Fuse Brown for a discussion of Texas v. United States and its implications for constitutional law, severability doctrine, and health policy. In December 2018, a District Court in Texas held the ACA’s individual mandate without a penalty is not a tax and is therefore unconstitutional, that the individual mandate is inseverable from the rest of the ACA, and the entire act must be struck down. The decision was stayed pending appeal to the Fifth Circuit. In March 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it would not defend any part of the ACA and that the District Court’s decision should stand, and oral arguments were heard before the Fifth Circuit in July 2019. This session provides an update on this ongoing litigation.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended. Lunch is provided.
