Posted on 03/08/2011 6:02:02 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather
The Obama administration on Tuesday appealed a U.S. judge's ruling in Florida that struck down the landmark healthcare overhaul law as unconstitutional because it required Americans to buy healthcare insurance or face a penalty.

thanks for the update..
So proud are they of their monstrosity and so convinced of its legal standing that they had to be frog-marched into court to defend it.
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that defendants, the United States Department of Health and Human Services; Kathleen Sebelius, in her official capacity as Secretary of Health and Human Services; the United States Department of the Treasury; Timothy F. Geithner, in his official capacity as Secretary of the Treasury; the United States Department of Labor; and Hilda L. Solis, in her official capacity as Secretary of Labor, hereby appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit from the Final Summary Declaratory Judgment
Zero and Holder are biding their time while their Czars are working under the radar screen to dismantle the best Healthcare system in the world. I hope we can save it before it is totally destroyed.
Good. Let’s get this judicial train a-movin’. Obama is bound to lose unless he has some Supreme Court justices assassinated, which I don’t believe is outside his moral scruples.
It was totally predictable that they would ignore the "expedited" part of his ruling. I hope he tells them to expedite it by Thursday or else.
where can we find the appeal?
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
thanks guy - been waiting for anything on this like its Christmas
If this flagrant takeover by The Messiah and his minions is held to be "Constitutional" in the end (at SCOTUS), then America as a Republic is done.
They know they are going to lose when they get in front of the SCOTUS. Thats why they are dragging it through the 11th Court of Appeals. Every state should just stop implementing Obamacare until the SCOTUS rules on it. I am pretty sure Nebraska’s governor announced a couple of weeks ago that they were going to cease and desist until a final ruling comes through.
Yes, I believe you’re correct.
“It was totally predictable that they would ignore the “expedited” part of his ruling. I hope he tells them to expedite it by Thursday or else.”
What now oh constitution scholars out there? Isn’t this contempt of court to ignore expedited mandate?
“But will DOJ take the next required step and ask the appeals court for an expedited schedule going forward? Until tonight, it seemed like the government would wait out every deadline to the last possible moment. Now, however, DOJ may have come to the realization that the courts have seen through its strategy, and further delay will prejudice the next level of judges further.”
Maybe the expedited part is a separate filing? Any lawyers out there?
