Okla. allowed to move forward with lawsuit against Affordable Care Act
OKLAHOMA CITY – Our state has been given the green light to go forward with a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act.
Monday a federal judge denied the government’s motion to dismiss the case.
The lawsuit, originally filed in 2011, challenges part of the law that would penalize states without marketplace-type insurance exchanges.
The court rejected the federal government’s argument that Oklahoma lacks standing to challenge the law, allowing the case to proceed.
