Symposium Issue: King v. Burwell

In 2015, the University of Miami Business Law Review hosted its first online symposium to discuss the potential ramifications of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the then pending matter, King v. Burwell.

In King, the Court considered whether the Internal Revenue Service may permissibly promulgate regulations to extend tax-credit subsidies to coverage purchased through exchanges established by the federal government under Section 1321 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. If the Court held that the relevant federal tax credits are unconstitutional, millions of Americans would be at risk of losing their healthcare coverage. King was argued before the Supreme Court on March 4, 2015, and the decision is expected in June 2015.
