Health-Care Argument Extended to Six Hours at U.S. High Court

Feb. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court extended next month’s argument over President Barack Obama’s health-care law to six hours, adding 30 minutes to what was already the longest session in decades.

Responding to a request from both sides, the justices today scheduled an extra half-hour for the first day of arguments, which will run from March 26 to 28.

The first day will center on the Anti-Injunction Act, a law that one federal appeals court concluded prevents judges from ruling until 2015 on the central issue in the dispute: the requirement that Americans either buy insurance or pay a penalty.
