Florida suit poses a challenge to healthcare law

New York Times, May 11, 2010

But the case that could carry the most weight, and may be on the fastest track in the most advantageous venue, is the one filed in Pensacola, FL, by state officials, just minutes after President Obama signed the bill. Some legal scholars, including some who normally lean to the left, believe the states have identified the law's weak spot and devised a credible theory for eviscerating it, the New York Times reports.
