Healthcare cases arrive soon for eight-member Supreme Court
Modern Healthcare

There’s not much more time to speculate about how the Supreme Court will handle healthcare-related cases without the late Justice Antonin Scalia. A number of them are fast approaching on the court’s calendar, including one scheduled for arguments Tuesday. Legal experts say they expect the court will go ahead and hear those cases and others despite the conservative justice’s unexpected death late last week. The case set to be argued Feb. 23 involves the penalties companies face for patent infringement and could have a significant impact on the medical device industry.
