  • Mark Hutchison, lead Special Counsel for Nevada in the state's challenge to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)

In this presentation, Mark Hutchison, lead special counsel for Nevada, will examine the factual background and legal issues involved in the lawsuit brought by 26 states challenging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The legal bases for the decisions of the U.S. District Court in Florida and the U.S. Eleventh Circuit Court, both of which struck down provisions of the ACA, will be evaluated and compared with the decisions of other federal courts that have considered challenges to the ACA across the country. Finally, the issues that the U.S Supreme Court will consider, the unprecedented time allocated to oral argument for those issues, and the potential resolution of the case will be explored.

Mark Hutchison is the co-founding partner of Hutchison & Steffen, LLC and the firm's most experienced trial lawyer.
