Appeals court sets July hearing to review judge's decision to invalidate ACA

A federal appeals court has scheduled a July 9 hearing in the case challenging a judge's decision to strike down the ACA, according to The Hill.

The hearing will take place in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

In December, Texas federal judge Reed O'Connor concluded in a lawsuit brought by Republican-led states that the entire healthcare law is invalid because Congress eliminated the ACA's individual insurance mandate penalty.

The U.S. Justice Department is supporting the judge's ruling that the ACA is unconstitutional and filed a formal request May 1 to strike down the entire health law.

Democratic state attorneys general are challenging Mr. O'Connor's decision, according to The Hill.
