Following last month’s decision by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals holding the “mandate” of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to be unconstitutional, the states defending the ACA requested the U.S. Supreme Court hear the case during its current term.

The Supreme Court has now ordered the Trump administration and the states challenging the constitutionality of the ACA to respond to the request by Friday, January 17, 2020.
