Two decisions today. In Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, No. 13-137, the Court upheld the right to bring disparate impact claims involving housing discrimination. MRW was wrong.
And in today’s Big Dog case, King v. Burwell, No. 14-114, the Affordable Care Act/subsidies case, subsidies, and the ACA structure, survive, 6-3. MRW called it 6-3, although we had Justice Scalia in the majority. Roll up that net, fellas, for I’m not falling off the limb on the tree today.
Presently, MRW is 3-2 on predictions, with an asterick for the missed Scalia call.
