Virginia Health Care Case Lingers On

Virginia, the 27th state to challenge the constitutionality of President Obama’s health care law, appears to have been unsuccessful (at least for the time being) in an effort to convince the Supreme Court to elevate the case so that it may proceed faster.

Attorney General (Virginia) Ken Cuccinelli “asked the court to resolve questions about the law quickly, without usual consideration by federal appellate judges and over objection of the Obama administration,” according to PilotOnline.

The Pilot reports that since the case was scheduled for private discussion late last week, and based on the fact that no news broke about the case today, that some debate may be going on behind closed doors.

Our National Elder Law Blog, Everything Elder Law, raised awareness of this (then impending) showdown late last year. You may review that article, entitled “Obama v. GOP: Healthcare showdown,” here.
