Supreme Court punts on fast-track review of healthcare law - The Hill's Healthwatch

By Julian Pecquet - 04/18/11 10:36 AM ET

The Supreme Court has not acted on a request to expedite a review of legal challenges to the healthcare reform law. 

The high court on Monday released the list of cases it has decided to take up or decline, and Virginia's healthcare reform challenge was not included. 

Court watchers had expected the high court to announce whether it would expedite Virginia's lawsuit against the law, but the justices aren't saying either way — for now. The Supreme Court issues a regular list of orders on each Monday it is in session, but the justices can also issue "miscellaneous" orders in individual cases at any time.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R), who is challenging the law's individual mandate, has petitioned the court to skip the appeals process and take up the case as soon as possible.

"Given the importance of the issues at stake to the States and to the economy as a whole, this Court should grant certiorari to resolve a matter of imperative public importance," Cuccinelli argued in his Feb. 8 motion.
