The most sought after tickets in Washington, DC this week were tickets to the Supreme Court's oral arguments in Department of Health and Human Services v. Florida. Lines wrapped around the building, with people queuing up three days in advance in hopes of witnessing the historic oral arguments which began Monday, March 26 and concluded on March 27.
Interested in hearing the arguments?
For those of us unable to make it to Washington this week, the Supreme Court has released an audio file of the oral arguments, as well as a 133 page printed transcript. Those files are available from the Supreme Court website. Monday's transcripts are available here, and Tuesday's transcripts are available here.
Interested in reading the merits briefs?
The briefs are available at the American Bar Association's Supreme Court Preview page. The merit briefs on the Anti-Injunction Act are available here and the merit briefs on the minimum coverage provisions are available here.
Interested in discussing the issues?
Professors Silverstein and Becker are hosting an open forum for law students and faculty to explore the substance and form of oral arguments in the case. The forum will be held on Thursday, March 29 at 4 PM.
