Supreme Court will hear challenge to health care law
A lawsuit hoping to repeal landmark health care reforms will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, and a decision will likely be handed down in advance of the 2012 general election.
The U.S. Supreme Court announce Monday that the justices will hear a challenge to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in late winter or early spring of 2012. Specifically, the justices will be asked if a requirement within the law that mandates health insurance or financial penalties is proper.
Once oral arguments have been made before the court, any decision should be made public by the end of June 2012.
