PHOENIX (AP) - There’s no immediate word on whether the Arizona Supreme Court will take up Gov. Jan Brewer’s appeal of a lower court decision allowing a lawsuit challenging her Medicaid expansion plan to proceed.

The court met privately Tuesday to discuss numerous proposed court rule changes and various cases. Those cases included Brewer’s request to overturn an appeals court ruling reinstating a suit filed by Republican lawmakers.

Court spokeswoman Heather Murphy said late Tuesday there’s no immediate word on any action on the Medicaid case.

The court could decide to consider the Medicaid case, leave the lower court decision intact or delay a decision.

The appeals court decision said lawmakers may sue over their contention that a hospital assessment funding the expansion is a tax requiring a two-thirds vote of the Legislature.
