Supreme Court to Hear Health Care Case in Late March

Public Health--Research & Library News

From the New York Times, news that the Supreme Court has scheduled 3 days to hear arguments on this case.  On March 26, the court will hear arguments on whether a federal law (Anti-Injunction Act) makes challenges to the mandate premature until 2015.  On March 27, the court will hear arguments on whether Congress exceeded its constitutional authority in requiring people to buy insurance or pay a penalty.  On March 28, the court will hear arguments on whether the provision requiring people to buy insurance may be severed from the balance of the statute, and on whether Congress was entitled to expand the scope of Medicaid.
