High Court Will Hear Health Care Cases

by Jonathan H. Adler

This morning the Supreme Court accepted certiorari in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals case challenging the constitutionality of the health care reform law.  The Court has accepted just about all of the legal questions raised in the case, including the spending clause challenge to the expansion of Medicaid, and also wants argument on whether the Tax Injunction Act precludes consideration of the challenges to the mandate prior to the assessment of penalties.  The oral arguments will cover several hours.
