The U.S. Supreme Court invited two esteemed Washington lawyers to join the marathon oral arguments scheduled for its review of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. In an order issued Nov. 18, H. Bartow Farr was asked to argue as a friend of the court that the requirement that individual’s buy health insurance can be severed from the rest of the law, meaning its many other provisions could survive if the mandate is ruled unconstitutional.
