Washburn Legal Expert Predicts Health Law Will be Upheld

khi logo520x275

Washburn University constitutional law professor Bill Rich is following the Supreme Court arguments on the health reform law closely. He’s reading transcripts as soon as they’re available. And he’s teaching the case as it’s happening.  Rich says he doesn’t think the tough questions being asked by conservative justices are necessarily a signal that they intend to overturn the law.  He says positions some of them have taken in other cases suggest they could vote to uphold it.

 Rich agrees with many observers that Justice Anthony Kennedy will likely be the key vote on a closely divided court. But he cautions against reading too much into Kennedy’s tough line of questioning on the individual mandate – the part of the law that requires Americans to purchase health insurance starting in 2014.
