President Obama wins the latest round in the health care legal fight.

A federal appeals court tossed out Virginia’s lawsuit against the Obama health care law, ruling that the state’s attorney general lacked legal standing to bring the case.

The decision essentially reversed a lower court judge’s ruling that the law violates the Constitution because it forces most Americans to buy some sort of health insurance.

The appeals court did not rule on the constitutional issues involved in the challenge to the health care law.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Richmond, is the second appeals court to rule in the administration’s favor on the landmark 2009 law, though a third one has ruled against its key provision: The insurance purchase requirement known as the individual mandate.
