University of Kansas law professor Stephen McAllister is headed to Washington this week to help the lawyer for a group of states prepare for a challenge of the federal health reform law. That case will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court next week. Kansas is one of 26 states objecting to the law’s requirement that virtually all Americans purchase health insurance. The case also opposes the law's expansion of the Medicaid program. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt – a Republican – says the health reform law is an “unprecedented federal power grab.”

Schmidt dispatched McAllister to help the lawyers who will argue the states’ case because he is considered an expert in constitutional law. McAllister also clerked for two Supreme Court justices before coming to KU.
