Court: San Francisco healthcare program can continue while lawsuit pending

San Francisco Chronicle, February 22, 2008
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the San Francisco healthcare program for the uninsured can continue while a lawsuit challenging the initiative is pending. The initiative requires companies with at least 20 workers to provide health coverage or pay the city a fee to help offset the program's estimated price tag. The Golden Gate Restaurant Association sued, arguing that the mandatory contributions the city imposed had violated federal law and placed a burden on members.
