Trump and the ACA: A Panel Discussion on Multi-City Litigation

The Law & Health Care Program at the Francis King Carey School of Law is hosting a panel discussion Oct. 25 on the multi-city lawsuit brought against the Trump administration for failure to implement the Affordable Care Act.

On Aug. 2, several cities (including Baltimore) filed suit against the administration for actions they say sabotage the Affordable Care Act. The suit alleges violations under the Administrative Procedure Act and the Take Care Clause of the Constitution.

We will hear from Baltimore City Solicitor Andre Davis, JD ’78, who is engaged in the lawsuit as the attorney for the city of Baltimore. Vincent DeMarco, JD, MA, president of the Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative, will provide perspective on the impact of Trump administration actions on Maryland residents. Professor Mark Graber, PhD, JD, MA, will discuss the constitutional arguments asserted in the complaint, particularly the argument that the administration’s actions violate the Take Care Clause.

Here are the details:

  • When: Thursday, Oct. 25
  • Time: 3:15 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Location: Ceremonial Moot Courtroom, Francis King Carey School of Law, 500 W. Baltimore St., Baltimore, MD 21201
  • Note: The panel is free and open to the public.
