The Supreme Court this year held hearings on one of the most historic cases in decades: a challenge by 26 states to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. The Court’s decision will have ramifications far beyond President Obama’s signature healthcare achievement. And with a ruling widely expected to be issued during the last week in June, there’s no better time to visit Washington, DC to get briefed on what it means for the U.S. health system.
At the National Council’s 8th Annual Public Policy Institute and Hill Day, we’ll be bringing you up-to-the-minute news about the ACA case. Patricia A. Millett of the prestigious DC law firm Akin Gump will present a breakout workshop on June 25 entitled “Supreme Court: Implications of the Affordable Care Act Decision.” The session will cover the four major issues at stake in the case against the ACA, the possible decisions the Court might make on each, and the impact of those decisions on both the ACA and the nation’s healthcare system.
Patricia Millett heads Akin Gump’s Supreme Court practice and co-heads the firm’s national appellate practice. She has argued a total of 31 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court (the most of any woman in history) and approximately 35 in the courts of appeals. She has briefed scores of cases in the Supreme Court and appellate courts across the nation.
