According to today’s press release at PR Newswire, the U.S. Citizens Association, an Ohio-based conservative organization with over 23,000 members, has filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court in Akron, Ohio to repeal the Health Care Bill signed into law in March.
The organization has hired three law firms to make the case in Federal Court that the new law, known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, violates protections afforded by the Bill of Rights to Americans.
Among other violations, the association believes the First Amendment guarantees their members the right to “not associate” with anybody they choose not to. And that includes health insurers and their agents. In addition, the association believes their members’ privacy may be violated, when forced to divulge confidential information.
The lawyers chosen to handle the history-making lawsuit include William G. Williams of Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty Co., L.P.A., in Canton, Ohio; Jonathan Emord of Emord & Associates in Washington, D.C.; and David C. Grossack of Newton, Massachusetts.
Founded in 1958, the Northeast Ohio firm of Krugliak, Wilkins, Griffiths & Dougherty Co., L.P.A, has grown to over 40 attorneys practicing in over 25 different areas of the law.
The attorneys of Washington, D.C. based Emord & Associates represent clients in constitutional and administrative law cases before many governmental organizations, including the Food and Drug Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Federal Communications Commission.
Mr. Grossack is best known for bringing an action against the Trial Court of Massachusetts for gender bias. He is also the author of the book How to Win a Lawsuit Without A Lawyer.
The U.S. Citizens Association is devoted to protecting individual liberties and promoting conservative values, fiscal responsibility, and the American private enterprise economic system.
