Attorney General Sam Olens Pleased that Judge Vinson Sets Deadline for Obama Administration to Appeal Healthcare Ruling

March 3, 2011

Attorney General Sam Olens made the following statement on Judge Roger Vinson’s order today issuing a stay on his January 31, 2011, ruling:

“Judge Vinson’s order today is a victory for the millions of taxpayers and businesses that face overwhelming burdens if President Obama’s federal healthcare reform is allowed to stand,” said Olens. “We have known from Day One that this case will not end until the day the U.S. Supreme Court issues a ruling, and Judge Vinson’s order brings that day much closer.   I will continue to work with NFIB and the 25 other states involved in the lawsuit to vigorously defend our State and the U.S. Constitution, and by extension, the rights of all Georgians throughout all stages of the litigation.”
