Abstract

Article III to the United States Constitution confines federal court jurisdiction to, inter alia, cases and controversies arising under the Constitution and United States laws. This clause is colloquially known as the justiciability doctrine. However, because policy considerations often shape the justiciability doctrine’s application in federal litigation, satisfying the doctrine is a significant, and sometimes muddled, burden for litigants to satisfy. This interdisciplinary article addresses how federal courts apply the justiciability doctrine in federal litigation. The article then analyzed the doctrine as applied in previous litigation challenging the Department of Health and Human Services Mandate under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.
