In a Perspective piece in the December 15, 2010 New England Journal of Medicine, RWJF Investigator Award winner (2004) Mark Hall, J.D., discusses recent lower court rulings on the Affordable Care Act – President Obama’s signature health care reform law. A federal judge in Virginia recently found unconstitutional the law’s requirement that Americans buy health insurance or face a fine. Two other lower courts had already found the provision constitutional. The case is widely expected to reach the Supreme Court.

Hall’s article, Health Care Reform: What Went Wrong on the Way to the Courthouse, is available online for free.
