The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out two challenges to the 2010 health care law. In one case, the court ruled that Virginia's attorney general did not have standing to sue; in the other, the court ruled it could not hear a case against the law's requirement that those without insurance pay a penalty until that provision takes effect. More than 30 lawsuits have been brought against the act, and the outcomes have been mixed. Most expect the U.S. Supreme Court to have the final say.
