High Noon at the High Court

This will be an interesting upcoming three (3) days of oral arguments in front of the US Supreme Court.

High Court set for showdown
By Don Finley Express-News

Two years after it was enacted, and with Americans still passionately divided, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear arguments beginning Monday on President Barack Obama's landmark health care reform law.

San Antonio — where one in six workers is employed in health care or medical research and 24 percent of residents lack health insurance — has a big stake in the outcome. Texas is one of 26 states that have sued to overturn the law.

With a nod to the importance of the case, the Supreme Court has allotted six hours over three days to hear oral arguments, instead of the usual one hour. A ruling is expected by early summer.
