Sixth Circuit Upholds Individual Mandate

By a 2-1 vote, the Sixth Circuit upheld the individual mandate as a valid exercise of the Commerce Clause power.  For those keeping score of political affiliation, one of the two majority judges was appointed by President Carter, the other by the second President Bush. The dissenting judge was appointed by President Reagan. (Thanks to Marty Lederman for reporting the decision on the con law professors list-serv.)
