Justices Meet Friday To Vote On Health Care Case [VIDEO]

A vote today by the Supreme Court on President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul will go a long way toward determining its fate but still may not be the final word.

The decision and accompanying opinions won’t be released until sometime in late June. Minds and winners have changed before in the time between the vote and the actual opinion.

The justices will meet in a wood-paneled conference room on the court’s main floor. No one else will be present.

The late Chief Justice William Rehnquist has written that the court’s conference “is not a bull session.”

 

Brian Fitzpatrick, a Vanderbilt University law professor who once worked for Justice Antonin Scalia, says it’s not a debate either.

No one’s vote counts more than the others’, but because they speak in order of seniority, it will become clear fairly quickly what may become of the law.
