Two GOP Judges Will Be On Health Law’s Next Review Panel

The Wall Street Journal: Next Panel Reviewing Health Law Holds Two GOP Judges
After facing a favorable panel of judges during its first appeals-court defense of the federal health care law, the Obama administration will face two judges appointed by Republican presidents during the next major case on the law's constitutionality. The Cincinnati-based Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will consider the law on June 1, and the three-judge panel hearing the case includes a high-profile appointee of George W. Bush and a long-tenured trial judge appointed by Ronald Reagan. A court official said the panel was chosen at random (Kendall, 5/16).
