Health Care Lawsuit Heading to the Supreme Court

November 14, 2011 Updated Nov 14, 2011 at 2:16 PM EST

INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday that it would accept the landmark case against the Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, brought by 26 states and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

NFIB is the only business group in America to have challenged the constitutional legitimacy of the federal health care law. The group says the healthcare law is a burden and the expense is a concern for all Americans, but especially for small businesses.

So far the case has been upheld by two federal courts and now awaits action by the Supreme Court.
