Supreme Court grants review of all three Florida Obamacare petitions

By Supreme Court grants review of all three Florida Obamacare petitions

The Supreme Court has announced that it will hear all three sections of the Florida case. Since there are two groups of plaintiffs in the Florida case, they and the defendants all petitioned the Supreme Court; the justices combined all these petitions and will allow extended oral argument.

The Court took no action on the Liberty University, Thomas More, or Virginia cases.
