Health measure's opponents plan legal challenges

New York Times, March 23, 2010

Their arguments in court are likely to focus on the scope of the mandate and the intrusion of the federal government into state affairs, David B. Rivkin Jr., a lawyer advising Florida who served in the Justice Department under President Ronald Reagan and the first President George Bush, told the Times.
