A federal judge in Florida says he wants to set a fast schedule for a lawsuit by at least 18 states aimed at overturning President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

But Senior U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson said Wednesday the case still could take months to make its way through his court. Hearings and filing deadlines in the case are slated into November.

Wednesday's scheduling hearing was the first court date in the case brought by Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and attorneys general or governors to stop the health care plan.

The states claim the federal government cannot force citizens to buy health insurance or force a mandate on states without providing money to pay for it.
