Our colleague Stuart Gerson of Epstein Becker Green has a new post on SCOTUS Today that will be of interest to our readers: "The Court Upholds Obamacare, Yet Again, Takes a Broad View of Free Exercise and a Narrow View of Alien Tort Claims."

The following is an excerpt:

At least two of the three cases in which opinions issued today, California v. Texas, involving the latest challenge to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, and Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, involving the question of whether it was a violation of First Amendment’s Free Exercise Clause for a municipality to refuse to contract with a religious social service agency that refuses to certify same-sex couples as foster parents, had been expected by most commentators to satisfy that presumption.
