I have uploaded the opinion handed down this evening by the U.S.D.C. for the Northern District of Texas (O’Connor, J.) overturning the ACA. Needless to say, I thought that the decision was important enough that it should be uploaded even before I had an opportunity to read it. Thus, I cannot summarize it or comment upon it at this point.
I am not clear on the current procedural posture of the case. For instance, it does not appear that the court issued some sort of relief to the plaintiffs that would, without a stay, either immediately stop the ACA or give a right to an appeal without further proceedings in the district court.
I will update as matters are clarified.
