San Francisco Chronicle

A U.S. appeals court in Atlanta put on an expedited schedule the federal government’s appeal of a judge’s decision throwing out the Obama administration’s health- care law.

The court today granted a U.S. Justice Department request to speed consideration of the administration’s bid to reverse U.S. District Judge C. Roger Vinson’s Jan. 31 ruling in the lawsuit, which was brought by 26 states.
