The battle over health care reform will continue this fall, with three key challenges under way in the federal courts and several states considering ways to block the new law.

The Obama administration’s hopes of an early end to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s attack on the health law were dashed last week when U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson refused to dismiss the lawsuit. Hudson will hear arguments on the merits in his Richmond courtroom on Oct. 18. A step ahead of the Virginia litigation is a challenge brought by the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm in Ann Arbor, Mich. U.S. District Judge George Steeh in Detroit heard arguments on July 21 on the merits and the center’s request for a preliminary injunction. There is also the lawsuit by 20 state attorneys general filed in a Florida federal district court. Senior Judge Roger Vinson has set Sept. 14 for arguments on the government’s motion to dismiss.
