LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Slaton man who filed suit against President Barack Obama, former Speaker of the U.S. House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had his case thrown out Tuesday, although he may be able to file it again.

Back in February, a Slaton man named Arthur Enloe, along with some other people, mostly in Tennessee, filed a lawsuit against President Obama to stop healthcare reform.

On Tuesday, a federal judge said these motions should be "denied without prejudice" pending the outcome of a Supreme Court case that deals with the same issues.

Judge Sam R. Cummings said the complaint was essentially "a constitutional attack on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act," and that the Supreme Court is already considering a case, Dep't of Health & Human Servs. vs. Florida, that is likely to settle the issues raised in Enloe's suit.

The judge said Enloe will be able to file another motion and reopen his case after the Supreme Court rules on Dep't of Health & Human Servs. vs. Florida.
