High Court Side-Steps Liberty University’s Challenge to Employer Mandate

liberty-counsel-logoWashington, DC — Monday, the United States Supreme Court side-stepped an opportunity to take up Liberty University’s challenge to the entire employer mandate, declining to review the case without comment. Denial of review does not result in an opinion on the merits. The Court could take up a similar challenge if a federal court of appeals strikes down the entire employer mandate, although no such challenge is currently pending.

This was the first private lawsuit against ObamaCare filed on the day President Obama signed it into law on March 23, 2010.
