Abstract:     
In Finch v. Commonwealth Insurance Connector Authority, 461 Mass. 232 (2012), the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court held that a 2009 law barring a class of legal immigrants from a state funded health insurance program for low income adults violated the state Constitution. This article presents our perspective as plaintiff’s counsel. We focus on the pragmatic issues that we confronted as we considered whether or not to pursue litigation, and the forum and claims to pursue.
