Supreme Court lets university’s reform law challenge proceed
Modern Healthcare

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday revived a legal challenge to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act dealing with issues that weren’t addressed in the landmark June 28 ruling that upheld the constitutionality of the healthcare reform law.

Legal experts said Liberty University v. Timothy Geithner (PDF) does not appear to threaten striking down the law, as could have happened with the prior litigation. But the revived challenge could potentially have wide ramifications for how the government forces employers to offer healthcare coverage for workers.
