Supreme Court Will Hear ACA Constitutionality Case During Upcoming Term
On March 2, 2020, the Supreme Court announced it will hear the Affordable Care Act (ACA) lawsuit (California v. Texas) questioning the legality of the health care reform law. The court did not take any action on a similar appeal case (U.S. House of Representatives v. Texas). The court is scheduled to hear arguments in the term that begins this October, with a possible ruling in early 2021. (Please note the timing of a ruling is an estimate and can change, depending on many factors.)

The order is available here.

Court filings and other documents pertaining to California v. Texas are available here.
