SCOTUS to review health care cases in November

Per Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSblog:
"The Supreme Court will take its first look at the challenges to the new federal health care law at its Conference on Thursday, November 10. Five of the six pending petitions (the sixth is not ready yet) were distributed to the Justices' chambers on Wednesday, for consideration at that private session. Although a grant of review is not assured, that is highly likely, since all sides agree that the Court should take on the controversy, and the constitutionality of a key provision of the new law has been decided differently by federal appeals courts."
Given the current makeup of the Court, anything could happen.

Meanwhile, for more information:
