I got up early this morning because of a rumor, that there was a slight possibility that the Supreme Court would rule on the Affordable Care Act at 10am Eastern. Even though I knew it was unlikely, the slight possibility was enough to focus the mind on how important this decision is.
They did release some opinions today, but none on the ACA. The decision is most likely in late June. Here’s an article in the National Journal that states it would be highly unlikely for the Court to rule early–after all, it’s a big complicated decision, and if you were writing a big paper with many other colleagues, wouldn’t you want to take all the time possible to get it right?
That said, that doesn’t mean that I won’t been keenly watching in the next few weeks, including next Tuesday, the next day that the Supreme Court releases judicial opinions.
