Braidwood Mgmt. Inc. v. Becerra, N.D. Tex. (Sept. 7, 2022)
On September 7, 2022, Judge Reed O’Connor of the District Court for the Northern District of Texas ruled a key component of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) preventive services mandate was unconstitutional. On cross-motions for summary judgment, the court ruled that the USPSTF experts’ appointments violated the Constitution and that the PrEP mandate violated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act as it concerned the plaintiffs in this case. The court ordered and scheduled supplemental briefings and will rule on appropriate remedies at a later date.
