The U.S. Court of Appeals in Virginai found that the state of Virginia has no standing to sue to block ObamaCare from being implemented. The Appeals Court even went a step further and REVERSED the decision of the US District Court in Virginia that previously foudn ObamaCare to be unconstitutional.

"For the reasons that follow, we hold that Virginia, the sole plaintiff here, lacks standing to bring this action. Accordingly, we vacate the judgment of the district court and remand with instructions to dismiss the case for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction."

Note that the court only found that Virginia has no right to sue. They did not actually rule whether the individual manadate is constitutional or unconstitutional. Surprisingly, this is not uncommon for courts to do.
