ACA challenge fails to win rehearing from appeals court
Modern Healthcare

A federal appeals court decided Friday it will not rehear a case considered one of the last significant legal challenges to the Affordable Care Act. The plaintiff in the case, Washington artist Matt Sissel, plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, said Timothy Sandefur, an attorney for Sissel with the Pacific Legal Foundation, which is backing the case. Sissel and his attorneys had asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to rehear the matter before a full court after a three-judge panel sided with the government last year.
