Supreme Court to Take Up Health Care

    WASHINGTON - MARCH 23:  President Barack Obama (C) signs the Affordable Health Care for America Act during a ceremony with fellow Democrats in the East Room of the White House March 23, 2010 in Washington, DC. The landmark bill was passed by the House of Representatives Sunday after a 14-month-long political battle that left the legislation without a single Republican vote.

The court will hold oral arguments sometime in the spring, most likely in March. It is expected to issue a decision by the end of its current term, which is normally in late June—and which next year will fall in the middle of the presidential campaign.
