Judge Roger Vinson issues stay of own ruling [updated at link]
Politico ^ | March 3, 2011 | Jennifer Haberkorn

Posted on 03/03/2011 10:02:40 AM PST by jazusamo

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson has issued a stay of his own ruling declaring the health care reform law unconstitutional, giving the Obama administration seven days to file an appeal.

The stay means implementation of the law can proceed pending the administration’s appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

In his ruling, Vinson repeated what he has said previously — that “the citizens of this country have an interest in having this case resolved as soon as practically possible.”

“That was nearly eleven months ago,” he wrote. “In the time since, the battle lines have been drawn, the relevant case law marshaled, and the legal arguments refined. Almost everyone agrees that the constitutionality of the Act is an issue that will ultimately have to be decided by the Supreme Court of the United States. It is very important to everyone in this country that this case move forward.”

7 days is March 10, 2011. so that means it is not unconstititional or is it unconstitional so he wants fast track to Supreme Court. Maybe Vinson is fed up with Odumbo wanting a clarification so he said okay you want to play dumb. I will let the aapellate court determine how damn stupid are your lawyers.

I wonder if Judge Vinson is doing this to speed up the appeals process?

Am I missing something. Judge did not accept the “we dont understand” rule. You have 7 days, is this not what we wanted?

The Supreme Court is making a mockery of our Constitution by not taking this case and resolving it.

Our economy and our very lives hang in the balance. Take it now dammit.

“The stay means implementation of the law can proceed pending the administration’s appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit”

Obama has been implementing Obamacare with a middle finger to Vinson’s ruling.

He was threatned. His next step was to start putting Admin officials in jail.

Sounds like he’s forcing The Messiah’s hand here, in that he’s giving them 7 days to Appeal; otherwise, I believe he will render a Contempt ruling, along with a Cease and Decist on Obamacare, whereby they can no longer NOT stop implementation.

What happens if they don’t appeal in 7 days?

A stern warning will be sent to them. They can then put off the appeal indefinitely. Typical socilaist/marxist/liberal tactic.

I think this is being misunderstood. The Government was trying to get a backdoor stay. What he did is give them a 7 day stay (normally a stay could last months to years). Now he says look, you guys have drug your feet long enough, this needs to be affirmed so this law can be thrown out.

Agreed.

Justice moves much more slowly than we would prefer, but after reading Vinson’s arguments I’m fine with however he wants to move forward. He would know better than I which is the best way to get this thing lock-tight.

Or I would assume that he does.

If I understand it, the judge ordered them to seek an expedited appeal, either to the CoA or to the SC..saying that this issue will ultimately end up with SCOTUS, and that it's important that constitutionality be decided.

I understand that the judge can't ORDER them to take it to the Supremes, but it seems to me that he pretty much told SCOTUS that they had to take it..it would be pretty hard for them not to do so not..even if Obama goes to the CoA..

Try another option, NOT POLITICO.

It means, Obama got more than ‘clarification’ he asked for.

It’s a stay,- as long as Obama-(IF)- files to expedite the case to the Supreme court in 7 days...

So, Ozombie wanted to have this float around for years, and the judge only gave the White Hut SEVEN days.

OK, from yours and other posts this may not be as bad as it sounds.

I thought that this judge had asked for the state AG’s to respond to Ozombie’s “clarification.” I guess they passed on that.

He basically told them they have a week to appeal to the 11th Circuit court (the one above him) or else. I don’t see this as a cave, more like a slap upside the head.

Megyn Kelly on Fox said this is a huge blow to the Obama administration and the judge also told them he did not buy the fact that they did not understand his ruling. The remedy is simple.

he’s making them APPEAL it rather than sitting around delaying, which has been the obama admin aim all along, that they can drag it out and hope against hope that some provisions become popular enough that it would serve to balance against overturning it. this is a GOOD thing. no one but the sup ct can definitively rule on this and that has to happen ASAP. delaying is what the obams wants to do, Judge Vinson is saying um, no, you get the stay but ONLY if you appeal this in 7 days time.

it is most definitely NOT a cave. and the language of the decision was biting and sarcastic, he wasn’t happy to have to CLARIFY what was perfectly clear. he did a fantastic job of dealing with this IMO.

I would argue the stay for only 7 days is akin to going the extra mile. The Administration is on notice......... act or lose

By issuing a stay, isn’t Judge Vinson saying that the force of his original ruling was to halt implementation, even though the regime was proceeding.

I think this is a definite win for the good guys!
