The recent ruling made by Judge Vinson in Florida is now being asked by the Obama administration to be appealed as quickly as possible, as it challenges the health care overhaul’s constitutionality.  The Justice Department has filed a notice of appeal on Wednesday, March 9, and it will go to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.

April 18 is the proposed date that the government will file its first set of papers in court on the issues brought up by Vinson.  The government is also proposing that May 18 be the date set for those who are challenging the new health care law.  June 1 is the date set by the government when they will file additional papers.

Although a fast appeal has been sought by the Obama administration, Charles Shanor, a law professor at Emory University in Atlanta, believes that the court won’t be so quick to give out a ruling, and that it may take months before one is issued.  “I just don’t see the court writing an overnight opinion in a matter that’s of such concern to the public.” said Shanor.  He also added that this particular court, the 11th Circuit, is seen as “moderate” compared to other courts of appeal in the country.


It sounds like this case will definitely not be resolved anytime soon, so we’ll keep you posted with any updates or further rulings as the appeals process moves forward.
