Kent Masterson Brown Files a Petition for Writ of Certiorari in the Supreme Court of the United States on August 24, 2012

Kent Masterson Brown filed a Petition for Writ of Certiorari in the Supreme Court of the United States on August 24, 2012 in the case of Hall, et al. v. Sebelius, et al.  He was joined on the Petition by Richard A. Epstein, a Constitutional Law scholar at New York University and the University of Chicago.  The Petition asks the Court to hear the case because the Social Security rules requiring seniors to enroll in Medicare, Part A, as a condition of receiving their Social Security are contrary to the Medicare and Social Security Acts and the requirement represents an unconstitutional condition as set forth in the Supreme Court’s Opinion in the Obamacare case, National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, 567 U.S. ___, 132 S.Ct. 2566 (2012).  Multiple amici have already informed Mr. Brown they will be filing briefs in support of the Petition.  Read the Petition here (PDF).
