Supreme Court rejects fast-tracking healthare reform case

The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to grant a request from Virginia's attorney general to grant fast-track status to litigation around the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, reports the Washington Post. The rejection of Ken Cuccinelli's request was not unexpected, as the high court rarely takes up cases before they go through the full appellate process. Lower federal courts have both upheld and struck down the constitutionality of the reform law. The case could wind up being heard by the Supreme Court in its 2012 session. Article
