Court Says Nothing about Health Care Appeal

Thursday, 10 Nov 2011 05:51 PM

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is not immediately saying whether it will make an election-year determination on the constitutionality of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

Justices met in private conference Thursday to consider new cases to hear next year. Appeals surrounding the health care overhaul were on the list to be discussed, but there was no announcement as to whether the hot-button issue had even been discussed.

The next opportunity justices have to reveal when or if they will hear a health care overhaul appeal is on Monday.

Lower courts have ruled in conflicting ways on the new law and its requirement that individuals buy health insurance starting in 2014 or pay a penalty.

If the court decides to take the case, oral arguments could come as early as March.
