In a decision issued June 29, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit upheld the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.   It found that the minimum coverage provision is a valid exercise of legislative power by Congress under the Commerce Clause.  This is the first appellate ruling on the law.  The decision was by a three-judge panel with one member dissenting.  Look for a motion for rehearing en banc within 14 days.  Oral arguments have been heard in similar cases in the Fourth and Eleventh Circuits, but those cases have not yet been decided.  http://1.usa.gov/mOSdyo
