Judge has harsh words for Obama Administration – gives them 7 days to appeal

A lawless Obama Administration gets some “clarification” in no uncertain terms.  Some excerpts below and a link for the entire order at the bottom:

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
PENSACOLA DIVISION

Case No.: 3:10-cv-91-RV/EMT

STATE OF FLORIDA, by and through
Attorney General Pam Bondi, et al.; Plaintiffs

vs

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF
HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, et al.;Defendants

. . . . “A litigant who tries to evade a federal court’s judgment — and a declaratory judgment is a real judgment, not just a bit of friendly advice — will come to regret it.”  If it were otherwise, a federal court’s declaratory judgment would serve “no useful purpose as a final determination of rights.” For the
defendants to suggest that they were entitled (or that in the weeks after my order was issued they thought they might be entitled) to basically ignore my declaratory judgment until “after appellate review is exhausted” is unsupported in the law.

…..

To the extent that the defendants [Barack Obama, Kathleen Sebelius, et al] were unable (or believed that they were unable) to comply, it was expected that they would immediately seek a stay of the ruling, and at that point in time present their arguments for why such a stay is necessary, which is the usual and standard procedure. It was not expected that they would effectively ignore the order and declaratory judgment for two and one-half weeks, continue to implement the Act, and only then file a belated motion to “clarify.”

…..

The sooner this issue is finally decided by the Supreme Court, the better off the entire nation will be.

It is very important to everyone in this country that this case move forward.

And yet, it has been more than one month from the entry of my order and judgment and still the defendants have not filed their notice of appeal.

Therefore, the defendants’ motion to clarify (doc. 156) is GRANTED, as set forth above. To the extent that motion is construed as a motion to stay, it is also GRANTED, and the summary declaratory judgment entered in this case is STAYED pending appeal, conditioned upon the defendants filing their notice of appeal within seven (7) calendar days of this order and seeking an expedited appellate review.

So, in other words, the government has 7 days to file a notice of appeal requesting an expedited hearing or they must stop implementing Obamacare.  Obamacare is unconstitutional.  Obamacare is void.  What I am not sure of is whether this applies to all states or only the 26 states that are parties to this lawsuit.

Don’t you know it just chaps this alleged president that he is not the ruler of all things.  But we’ll see if he tries to defy the ruling even at this point.
