Professor Pamela S. Karlan is quoted in an article discussing the legal challenges to the Obama adminstration's health care law. Politico's Josh Gerstein wrote the following story:

When President Barack Obama signed the health care bill two years ago, the legal challenges to the law were widely belittled as long shots — at best.

But as the cases head to the Supreme Court this week, what looked to many like far-out legal arguments to undo “Obamacare” don’t seem so zany anymore.


“I actually think the legal challenges hit a high point early on … and have since waned,” said Pam Karlan, a Stanford law professor who contends the law is constitutional.
