Supreme Court orders lower court to hear challenge to HHS mandate

November 27, 2012

The United States Supreme Court has ordered the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals to hear Liberty University’s challenge to the constitutionality of the HHS mandate. The appeals court had previously declined to hear the challenge.

“Our fight against ObamaCare is far from over," said Matt Staver, dean of Liberty University’s School of Law. “Congress exceeded its power by forcing every employer to provide federally mandated insurance. But even more shocking is the abortion mandate, which collides with religious freedom and the rights of conscience.”

Founded in 1971 by Jerry Falwell, Liberty University is a Southern Baptist institution.

    I don't think Liberty U. Is a Southern Baptist institution.. The Rev. Falwell and his church were not affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.
