The Supreme Court will decide soon whether to grant an expedited appeal in the Texas v. Azar case. Defenders of the Affordable Care Act have asked the court to grant an exception and hear the case in 2020 (before the election). SCOTUS has asked the plaintiffs (who are trying to overturn the ACA) to respond to the request for an appeal last week.

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in late 2019 that the ACA’s Individual Mandate is unconstitutional but pushed the case back to the lower court to determine which elements of the law are tied to the individual mandate. If an expedited appeal is granted, the Supreme Court would hear the case before the term ends in June of this year. More info here and don’t forget about the ACA Social Media Toolkit.
