Recusal at the Court is nothing new. Two of our recent and most highly controversial cases coming from the Court involved recusal in a significant way in the lead up to them. In 2012, in NFIB v. Sebelius, the Court decided that the Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare was constitutional.

Hodges.
