Ninth Circuit Denies En Banc Review in San Francisco Healthcare Mandate Case

Topics: Court Decisions

Today the Ninth Circuit issued an order denying Golden Gate Restaurant Association's petition for en banc review of the court's previous ruling that San Francisco's employer-mandated health care ordinance is not preempted by ERISA. A number of justices dissented from the denial of en banc review, including Smith, Kozinski, O'Scannlain, Kleinfeld, Tallman, Bybee, Callahan and Bea. It is anticipated that the Golden Gate Restaurant Association will seek review by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of whether San Francisco's Health Care Ordinance is preempted by ERISA.
