on Jan. 3 ap­pealed a fed­eral judge’s rul­ing that the Af­ford­able Care Act is un­con­sti­tu­tional. The 17 top state lawyers filed a no­tice of ap­peal with U.S. Dis­trict Judge Reed O’Con­nor in Texas, paving the way for the 5th U.S. Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals in Louisiana to weigh in on the case. They stepped in to de­fend the ACA af­ter the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion de­clined to do so. O’Con­nor also granted a stay for his rul­ing so the Af­ford­able Care Act will re­main in place as the case is ap­pealed.
