Obama Administration Appeals Ruling Striking Down Health Law
San Francisco Chronicle

The U.S. Justice Department said in a court filing that it will appeal a federal judge’s Jan. 31 ruling striking down President Barack Obama’s health-care reform legislation.

Federal lawyers filed a notice of appeal with U.S. District Judge C. Roger Vinson in Pensacola, Florida. Their submission yesterday came two days before a deadline imposed by the judge last week, when he put on hold enforcement of his ruling.
