Full Document Available in PDF

This lawsuit cobbles together an array of disparate challenges to the constitutionality of three titles of an act of Congress and the constitutionality of the President’s appointment of an executive officer. Despite the roving allegations of unconstitutionality set forth in the Amended Complaint, not one of the statutorily authorized actions that Plaintiffs speculate might someday cause them harm has yet occurred.
