Oral arguments in California v. Texas offer a glimpse at how the Supreme Court might rule in deciding the fate of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”). Attorneys Stuart Gerson and Tim Murphy also look at what Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s recent appointment means for the ACA and other health law decisions in the upcoming term.

Here’s a preview:

  • “We're now faced with a situation where we could very well have a national calamity if the [Supreme] Court were to invalidate the entire Affordable Care Act.” —Stuart Gerson, Member of the Firm
  • “We get surprised, and rather quickly so, by [Supreme Court] appointees. Looking at how, for example, Justice Gorsuch has reacted in several recent cases, you know that there are no sure things.” —Stuart Gerson, Member of the Firm
  • “And even if Congress was to act, there's no guarantee that they would do so without need for litigation afterwards under the ERISA statute, right? So, they could amend it in a way that still leaves a chance for further court cases to come.” —Tim Murphy, Associate
