U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
The NFIB Legal Center is participating in a court challenge to overturn San Francisco’s Worker Healthcare Security Ordinance. This ordinance, passed by the City Council in July of 2006, requires employers to provide health insurance for their employees or pay a fine to the city.
Status: DECIDED. Amicus brief filed on 03/27/08 in support of GGRA’s challenge. On September 30, 2008, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected NFIB’s arguments and upheld the San Francisco ordinance.
