Full Appeals Court Won’t Be Asked to Rule on Health Care Law

By Kevin Sack, The New York Times

The Justice Department announced on Monday that it would not ask the full Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to reconsider a three-judge panel’s ruling against the 2010 health care law. That presumably leaves the government to appeal its loss directly to the Supreme Court, although Tracy Schmaler, a Justice Department spokeswoman, declined to comment on the next steps. The Supreme Court has already received one of the multitude of federal cases challenging the constitutionality of the law’s individual insurance mandate. It arrived in July from the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, in Cincinnati, which upheld that provision on a 2-to-1 ruling. A month later, the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, in Atlanta, ruled 2 to 1 against the mandate.
