Houston Chronicle, 3/26/2012

Mark Armstrong, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Science practice, in the Houston office, was quoted in an article titled "Only Certainty from Health Care Ruling Is Change; Challenge to Obama Mandate Will Be Heard in Supreme Court, Starting Monday," written by Jeannie Kever.

Following is an excerpt:

The Supreme Court will hear six hours of arguments spread over three days - the most time it has devoted to oral arguments in decades.

The court could rule in June, just in time for the final months of the 2012 presidential campaign. In the meantime, hospitals, physicians and other businesses are moving ahead despite the uncertainty.

"I think for the most part, they're going ahead, planning for (implementation in) 2014," said Armstrong. "They're just waiting to see what the Supreme Court's going to do."
