Health Care Law Goes to Supreme Court

News

The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case challenging the health care overhaul law.

This country's highest court will consider a challenge to the 2010 health care overhaul law, which is President Obama’s legislative achievement.
This latest development now sets the stage for oral arguments before March and a decision is expected sometime in late June, during the middle of the 2012 presidential campaign.

Monday’s order answers questions about just how the case would proceed. It offers a road-map for a ruling that may define the legacy of the Supreme Court under Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.
