Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Joel Dubina of Alabama will sit on the panel with U.S. Circuit Judges Frank Hull of Georgia and Stanley Marcus of Florida.
Dubina was a 1990 appointee of President George H.W. Bush while Hull and Marcus were both tapped by President Bill Clinton.
They are scheduled to hear oral arguments on June 8 from Georgia and 25 other states who are urging the 11th Circuit to uphold a federal judge’s ruling that the overhaul’s core requirement is unconstitutional.
The federal government argued that requiring nearly all Americans to carry health insurance is a “quintessential exercise” of the legislative branch’s powers.
