High Court Takes Up Fight Over Obama Health Law

Supreme Court justices will spend the next three days hearing arguments over President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

Opponents of the law, including 26 states, believe a provision that requires individuals to get health insurance is unconstitutional. But the first arguments will concern whether a challenge to the law is premature, since the insurance requirement doesn't kick in until 2014.

A decision is expected by late June, in the midst of a presidential election campaign in which all of Obama's Republican challengers oppose the law and promise its repeal, if the high court doesn't strike it down first.
