March 28 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments about the constitutionality of President Barack Obama's health-care overhaul in the case of National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius.
In today’s morning session, justices focused on what would happen to the law if the core requirement that Americans get insurance is struck down. Paul Clement of Bancroft PLLC speaks in support for the 26 states challenging the law. Deputy U.S. Solicitor General Edwin Kneedler represents the federal government. H. Bartow Farr III of Farr & Taranto was appointed by the court to argue that justices should leave the rest of the law intact even if they invalidate the insurance requirement.
