On the same morning as this article is written, the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to release its opinion striking down coverage for contraception.
The opinion will or may continue the Court's trend of writing words which convince very few people, probably not even the Justices themselves. If we want to find an explanation of the issues involved and how past precedents might have been used by judges and lawyers to resolve those issues, we may want to look elsewhere.
The issues are all addressed and the precedents all seem to be thoroughly examined in this comprehensive article published in 2013: DiMugno, “The Affordable Care Act’s Contraceptive Coverage Mandate,” 35 Insurance Litigation Reporter 5 (Thomson Reuters 2013).
