American Law Librarian Cited in Recent US Supreme Court Decision

John Cannan, research and instructional services librarian at Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law in Philadelphia, made the history books on June 25.

The United States Supreme Court opinion King v. Burwell cites Cannan's Law Library Journal article, "A Legislative History of the Affordable Care Act: How Legislative Procedure Shapes Legislative History," 105 Law Library Journal 131 (2013).  The Law Library Journal is a publication of the American Association of Law Libraries.

Cannan's article is cited on p.14 of the judgment.

King v. Burwell upholds a key provision of the Affordable Care Act that provides tax subsidies for the purchase of health insurance in all 50 American states.
