California Challenge To Federal Healthcare Law Set For Oral Arguments On July 13.

CQ (6/7, Norman, Subscription Publication) reports, “Yet another challenge to the healthcare law will be the subject of oral arguments in an appeals court – this one a suit dismissed by a California federal judge in 2010 for lack of standing.” Under an order issued last week “by the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, oral arguments will be heard July 13 in a case filed by the Pacific Justice Institute and Steve Baldwin, a former state lawmaker.” PJI and Baldwin “alleged that the law is unconstitutional because it requires employers to buy health insurance for workers and because the revenue provisions did not originate in the House of Representatives.” CQ notes that a fourth suit filed by 26 states is scheduled for oral arguments this week in Georgia.
