Professor Andy Hessick, associate dean for Research and Faculty Development at the College of Law, recently was quoted on an upcoming Supreme Court case in The Wall Street Journal article, “Hurdle for Health- Law Suit.”

According to the Dec. 5 article, Mary Brown, the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit against the Obama administration’s health care overhaul, brought by 26 states and joined by the National Federation of Independent Business, filed for bankruptcy in October and her new unemployed status could change her relevance to the case.

Hessick said the court takes the status of plaintiffs very seriously, and could request additional briefings in light of Brown’s new circumstances.
