Appeals court to hear health care overhaul lawsuit
San Francisco Chronicle

An Atlanta federal courtroom will soon become the latest battlefield in the ongoing fight over President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments Wednesday on whether to reverse a Florida judge’s ruling that struck down vast portions of the law.

A cast of all-star attorneys who represent 26 states challenging the law will face off against the might of the Justice Department, which claims the legislative branch had the authority to enact the wide-ranging changes.
