(Washington, D.C.) Today, the National Women’s Law Center and law firm Hogan Lovells submitted an amicus brief on behalf of 68 organizations in the Supreme Court case, King v. Burwell, brought by plaintiffs challenging a core provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  The Court will consider whether the ACA allows the federal government to provide subsidies to individuals and families who buy insurance from the federally-facilitated health insurance Marketplaces, also known as Exchanges. The brief argues that a ruling for the challengers in King would thwart one of the main objectives of the law: to make health insurance more affordable and thus attainable for millions of Americans.

(Washington, D.C.)  The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) offered its strong support of the nomination of United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Loretta Lynch to be the Attorney General of the United States, NWLC said today.

The following is a statement by NWLC Co-President Marcia D. Greenberger:

“The National Women’s Law Center strongly supports the nomination of Loretta Lynch to be Attorney General of the United States. Ms. Lynch’s legal expertise, breadth and depth of experience, and commitment to equal justice and the rule of law make her exceptionally qualified to serve as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer.

LaShonda Davis says, “NWLC took my case all the way to the Supreme Court and won. As a result, other students who are harassed will get the help that I didn’t, and schools will do more to protect students.”
