Health care lawsuit heads to appeals court
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Two appointees of President Barack Obama have been selected for the three-judge federal appeals court panel reviewing his health care overhaul in Virginia.
Judges Andre Davis and James Wynn were randomly selected for the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel.
The third judge also is a Democratic appointee. Judge Diana Motz was named to the court by former President Bill Clinton. Their names were posted on the court's website Tuesday morning.
The panel in Richmond will hear two cases involving the legislation Tuesday. In one, the federal government is appealing a ruling striking down the law's requirement that individuals buy health insurance or pay a penalty. In the other case, Liberty University is appealing another judge's ruling upholding the law.
