On Wednesday, the court heard the one hour of oral arguments regarding the Obamacare case before them; they will meet today (Friday) to vote in this case. However, that does not mean we will get to know the outcome just yet – in fact we may have to wait until June. The Unit 4 exam is on 17th June and in the event that the decision is handed down before then, I would thoroughly recommend that students are clear on the decision, the majority-minority split and the impact. Until then, this article gives an excellent rundown of the next steps following oral arguments.
