U.S. Supreme Court Decisions 2015: ‘Not All Settled Law’

Josh Blackman, an assistant professor of law at the South Texas College of Law and an expert on constitutional law, the U.S. Supreme Court, and the intersection of law and technology, discusses key decisions of the court’s term.

Author of Unprecedented: The Constitutional Challenge to Obamacare, Blackman deconstructs the court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act.
