The Actual Name of the U.S. Supreme Court’s “Affordable Health Care Act” Case is:


National Federation of Independent Business Et Al. v. Sebelius, Secretary Of Health And Human Services, et al. No. 11–393.

Argued March 26, 27, 28, 2012—Decided June 28, 2012*

That asterisk refers to this, which you’ll find on page 1 of the Supreme Court’s slip opinion:

*Together with No. 11–398, Department of Health and Human Services et al. v. Florida et al., and No. 11–400, Florida et al. v. Department of Health and Human Services et al., also on certiorari to the same court.

You can read the official(ish) version at the U.S. Supreme Court’s website (2011 Term). (I say “ish” only because advance sheets, slip opinions, “first-edition” cases can be edited, usually for minor errors, before the final, official version is published.)

You can find legislative links to the Affordable Health Care Act at a previous OLR blog post.
