In this article, the author argues Justice Kavanaugh made the right decision in the Allina Health Servs. v. Price, 863 F.3d 937 (D.C. Cir. 2017). The author indicates that this decision was correct based on subjective textualism. The author argues that legislative history should continue to be used in order to get to statutory meaning.
