Yesterday, the trio of judges of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments on the Healthy SF appeal from the City and the GGRA, and thus begins the waiting game: "The panel has no deadline, but the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, a local business group that challenged the measure, said it is hoping for a decision within several weeks ... The Labor Department argued in papers filed with the court that allowing local employer requirements could open businesses up to 'a potentially bewildering and conflicting array of mandates.' Several union groups claim the city measure doesn't conflict with the U.S. law because employers have a choice of either establishing a federally regulated health plan or paying a fee to the city."
