Some Interesting Recent Cases

I hope to say more about these cases. The summaries below are for the most part drawn from the Court's own summaries in English.

  • Prohibition of unlicensed medical practice is constitutionally permitted (2008Hun-Ka19, 7/29/2010). (Note: The decision itself is unremarkable, but what is interesting is how close the Court came to ruling the licensing requirements to be unconstitutional. The decision was 5-4 in favor of a finding of unconstitutionality; six votes are required to find a statute to be unconstitutional. It is unclear, but there must be some concern that the licensing requirements are too restrictive. I would welcome any comments on this.)
