High Court Rejects Quick Review of Health Law

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a request by Virginia's attorney general Monday to put its review of the Obama administration's healthcare law on the fast track.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, a leading opponent of the law, wanted the high court to quickly resolve questions about whether the law is constitutional.

"Expediting our case would have been the exception and so, although disappointing, this is not surprising," he said of Monday's ruling.

The American Center for Law and Justice also expressed disappointment in the high court's decision.

Jordan Sekulow, director of international operations for the ACLJ, talked more about the case on the CBN News Channel's Morning News, April 26.

"It's unfortunate the high court failed to expedite the case since this issue is of the utmost importance and that time is of the essence in resolving the constitutionality of 'Obamacare,'" said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ, which is challenging ObamaCare with its own federal lawsuit.

"We remain confident, however, that this flawed health care law will ultimately be declared unconstitutional after winding its way through the normal appeals process," Sekulow added."

"At the end of the day, we believe ObamaCare will be rejected by the high court," he concluded.

In the meantime, federal appeals courts will continue to handle the examination of the legislation.
