The U.S. Justice Department moved swiftly Thursday to take advantage of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision dismissing 18 states’ challenge to the Affordable Care Act on the ground that the states did not have the right to sue.

Within hours of the high court’s 7-2 ruling, department lawyers filed a “notice of supplemental authority” in the case Texas and Louisiana v. United States, pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. They argued the two states lack standing to challenge a recent Biden administration immigration deportation policy.
