The big courtroom at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit is empty today.  It wasn’t supposed to be. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to hear King v. Burwell, a challenge to the availability of tax credits under the Affordable Care Act, the D.C. Circuit shelved its consideration of Halbig v. Burwell, the parallel challenge that was on its docket for rehearing en banc (that is, by the full court) today.

Burwell that the ACA was designed to withhold tax credits from people in states where the federal government operates the insurance Exchange.
