Three-day oral arguments in health care case set for March

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the four issues involved in the challenge to the health care law over three days in March.

The court announced yesterday that the five and a half hours of oral arguments in the case will begin Monday, March 26, with an hour of argument devoted to the threshold issue of whether the Anti-Injunction Act precludes consideration of the constitutional claims before the law goes into effect in 2014.

On March 27 the Court will hear two hours of arguments on the central issue in the case: whether Congress had the authority to pass the individual coverage mandate. And on March 28 the Court has allocated 90 minutes for argument to consider whether the individual mandate is severable from the rest of the health care law, and an hour on the issue of the Medicaid expansion.
