LexBlog featured the article “Amid Abortion Uncertainty, Supreme Court Rejects Attempts to Evade Judicial Review: SCOTUS Today,” authored by Stuart M. Gerson, Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Health Care & Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s Washington, DC, and New York offices, in their roundup, “2021 Year in Review & Look Ahead.”

What to expect in the law in 2022

What does the future hold? No one can say for sure, but you can make an educated guess when you’re an expert in the field. As the days dwindle, our community has blogged about what they think is in store for law in 2022. …

A potential revisiting of Roe v. Wade following Texas’s abortion ban

The passage of Texas’s Heartbeat Act sparked outcry and protests around the nation as the lingering fear of a loss of reproductive rights came true. …

A historical ruling will follow next year as the Supreme Court has the potential to uphold a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy and effectively challenge Roe v. Wade. Stuart Gerson looks to this case and the implications it will have on abortion rights on Epstein Becker’s Commercial Litigation Update.

“Given the division of views revealed in the case, pessimists as to the continued survival of Roe and Casey will find little reason to change their predictions. We likely won’t know about that until well into next year.”
