Supreme Court Rejects Fast-Track Review of Health Care Law

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

“The petition for a writ of certiorari before judgment is denied”.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court rejected a request to fast-track review of the health care law.

As it stands now, the case will proceed through the federal courts of appeal and then onward to the Supremes.  On its current schedule, the case could possibly reach the Supreme Court in time for an early summer 2012 decision.
