Health overhaul fight in pivotal Atlanta court
San Francisco Chronicle

The latest round in the ongoing fight over President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul is being heard Wednesday in the federal appeals court in Atlanta.

A three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear arguments on whether to reverse a Florida judge’s ruling that struck down the law.

Some 26 states opposing the law and an alliance of small businesses are set to argue that Congress didn’t have the power to require virtually all Americans to maintain health insurance.
