    If the individual mandate is not constitutional, then to what extent can the mandate be severed from the rest of PPACA? Or, is it a necessary part of the law whose other provisions, especially the insurance reforms (such as prohibiting denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions), cannot stand on their own?

NJ Court: Child’s surname can be changed by custodial parent according to best interests standard

    Charles Toutant at the NJ Law Journal (subscription only), March 6, 2012: A state appeals court on Tuesday held that a surname picked by the primary custodial parent is presumed in the child’s best interests, creating a clash with a panel that found otherwise. The ruling in Holst-Knudsen v. Mikisch , A-3596-10, applied existing caselaw to reject the contrary holding on Jan. 20 in Emma v. Evans , A-2303-10, that the presumption in favor of the custodial parent should not apply to children born in wedlock. The Holst-Knudsen panel said it did not read two Supreme Court rulings on the issue “as making a distinction between children born out wedlock and those born to married parents.”

    The opinion.
