O’Melveny’s Dellinger Quoted in LA Times About Lawsuit Against ObamaAugust 20, 2015 The August 20, 2015, Los Angeles Times article, “Obamacare Is Facing Yet Another Legal Challenge,” discusses the unprecedented lawsuit filed against President Obama alleging an overreach of power involving federal funds. The article says that a recent decision in the Supreme Court and an amended complaint give the lawsuit a much better chance of moving forward. O’Melveny & Myers’ Walter Dellinger is quoted as saying he doesn’t believe the courts will rule on the lawsuit because it sets a dangerous precedent. Dellinger said in the piece, “you'd see immediate litigation every time a law was passed.”
Dellinger is a member of the Appellate Practice at O’Melveny.
