Appeals court allows lawsuit against CareFirst to advance

On Tuesday, a three-judge panel of circuit judges for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia declined to dismiss the suit against CareFirst. The move reverses a lower court’s decision to dismiss the case for lack of standing, saying at the time the risk of future injury to the plaintiffs is too speculative.
