    By Sheldon Nahmod [via Nahmod Law]

    On January 18, 2012, I blogged about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act whose constitutionality is currently before the Supreme Court.

    In that post, I focused on the Commerce Clause challenge to the individual mandate.

    On February 10, 2012, I participated in an hour-long discussion of the overall constitutionality of the Act at a program sponsored by the Shriver Center and held in Chicago.

    This discussion, which was videotaped, covered the Commerce Clause, the Taxing Power, the expansion of Medicaid, and even the federal Tax Injunction Act.

    Below is the Youtube link to this discussion. I hope you find it of interest.

    This past fall the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Jones v. Harris Associates, a case concerning discrepancies in mutual fund fee arrangements.  With such a major mutual find case hitting the court, our very own mutual fund expert, Professor William Birdthistle, was interviewed by a range of media outlets and multiple posts appeared here in this blog on his various contributions to the issue, including discussion of his amicus brief in the case.  Professor Birdthistle also agreed to give a workshop to the Chicago-Kent student body on the litigation, just days before arguments were heard by the court.  You can listen to his talk by clicking play below.
