Constitutional champion David Rivkin, who led the successful multi-state lawsuit against ObamaCare in Florida, will once again debate the constitutionality of the individual mandate at a Federalist Society event held at Villanova Law School on Wednesday, March 23, 2011.
Rivkin, a partner in the Washington, D.C. lawfirm Baker & Hostetler, will be arguing his position that the law is unconstitutional against Professor Rand E. Rosenblatt of Rutgers University School of Law, Camden.
Rivkin is known as the first person to put forth the argument that the individual mandate is unconstitutional in a series of 2010 editorials and articles he wrote for The Wall Street Journal. He has frequently debated academics and other lawyers critical of his position using sound legal arguments that underscore his opponents’ misunderstanding of the Constitution.
Registration for the program begins at 5 p.m. and the debate starts at 5:30 p.m. Registration Fee is $15.00 for non-members, $5.00 for Federalist Society members, and free for Students. Payment accepted at the door by cash or check to "The Federalist Society." Non-member admission is $5.00 if no CLE credit is sought.
