After a Panama City businesswoman declared bankruptcy and closed up shop, the National Federation of Independent Business asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday to add two more plaintiffs to a landmark lawsuit challenging the 2010 federal health overhaul, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Mary Brown, who owned a Panama City auto-repair shop, has been a plaintiff in the case since Florida, other states and NFIB challenged the law in 2010. But the Journal reports that Brown’s business closing raised concerns that it could be harder to prove she would be harmed by the law.
As a result, NFIB asked to add two of its other members — New York and West Virginia business owners — as plaintiffs. Here is a link to the Journal story via the News Service of Florida.
