Obama administration likely to appeal preliminary ACA ruling
Modern Healthcare

The White House isn’t likely to wait long to challenge Wednesday’s ruling allowing House Republicans to sue the Obama administration for spending federal funds on the Affordable Care Act’s cost-sharing assistance.The administration is expected to seek what’s called an interlocutory appeal, which would allow a higher court to consider the issue of whether the House has standing to sue before the lower court addresses the merits of the case.It’s a somewhat rare legal move, but some legal experts say the case might just be unusual enough to warrant it.
