    WASHINGTON--Handing the Obama administration a legal victory, the federal judge in Florida who ruled the new healthcare law unconstitutional has cleared the way for continued implementation of the sweeping overhaul.

    In a ruling released Thursday, U.S. District Judge Roger E. Vinson, one of two federal judges who have said that the federal government cannot require Americans to get health insurance, stood by his Jan. 31 conclusion that that mandate invalidates the whole law.

    But he backed the administration's request that his earlier ruling be stayed while appellate courts review the constitutionality of new law.
