Justices Are Asked to Hear Challenge to Health Care Law
New York Times

The Supreme Court was asked on Wednesday to hear a challenge to the health care overhaul law, raising the possibility that the justices could rule on the matter by next summer, just months before the presidential election. Similar requests are likely to follow, and it is not clear which if any of them the court will agree to hear.

The petition submitted Wednesday was an appeal from a divided decision last month by a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, in Cincinnati.
