The 11th Circuit Court's ruling yesterday striking down the ObamaCare individual mandate is obviously the big news story of the past day. A few relevant links:

Klein: "Lawyer who challenged Obamacare speaks"
Some noteworthy pre-ruling analysis of relevant issues includes:
Elizabeth Price Foley: "Limited government, federalism, and the Affordable Care Act".
Beard: "ObamaCare v. the Constitution" (The Objective Standard, Summer 2011)
Bowden: "How important is the Obamacare litigation?"
The latest ruling makes it much more likely that the US Supreme Court will eventually issue a ruling on this issue.
FWIW, law professor Orin Kerr predicts that SCOTUS will uphold the individual mandate by anywhere from 6-3 to 8-1.
