If you are anxiously awaiting Monday’s kickoff of what many are calling the “Super Bowl of Constitutional Law”—the Supreme Court’s tackling of Obamacare—you may be looking for a layman’s explanation of this week’s events along with the possible outcomes.

If you are following along with the audio transcripts (they will be available on Friday), you may hear some discussion as to whether or not the entire question of the mandate is ‘ripe’ for review—meaning whether the case has been brought before the court prematurely.
