Constitutional scholars and advocates will discuss the Supreme Court's highly anticipated ruling on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. How does the ruling fit into the Court's broader federalism jurisprudence, and does it alter the balance of power between the judiciary and Congress? What does the ruling mean for other legislation? How will the ruling impact public perception of the Court?
