SCOTUS Denies Early Review of Obama Care Case

The SCOTUS has declined to hear early the Obama Care case from Virginia. Those who are opposed to Obama care on constitutional grounds wanted to have the case heard as quickly as possible so funding actions could be stopped.  Based on the research that I have done it seems this would have been unprecedented given that the Obama care case has not yet wound its way through the lower courts. There have been cases of the SCOTUS hearing a case quickly, but in those cases, the rulings had already been made or cases heard at the required lower levels. In these instances the requests for certiorari were made to move the case to the front of the SCOTUS docket so as to avoid the usual two year delay.  For any lawyers out there, please provide any corrections to any mistakes I might have made.
