San Francisco Healthcare Ordinance Stands

Topics: Court Decisions, Employee Benefits, Legal Information

The United States Supreme Court has denied review of the Ninth Circuit decision upholding San Francisco's employer mandated healthcare ordinance. In Golden Gate Restaurant Association v. City and County of San Francisco, the Ninth Circuit rejected the GGRA's legal challenge to the ordinance and held that the ordinance was not preempted by ERISA. Our prior post on the case is here. With the Supreme Court's denial of review of the Ninth Circuit decision, the GGRA is without further legal avenues to challenge the enforceability of the ordinance.
