Challenge to reform law goes back in court

A Christian college in Virginia can continue its claims that the health reform law violates its religious freedoms after the U.S. Supreme Court revived Liberty University's lawsuit against the Obama administration, FierceHealthcare reported. Although the high court's landmark decision in June upheld the reform law, it also allows lower courts to pass judgment on challenges to the individual mandate. Liberty said it's challenging the reform law on different grounds--the mandate that employers provide insurance coverage and the contraceptive coverage requirement. However, since the decision is "purely procedural," it doesn't imply that the court justices believe Liberty's arguments are likely to win. Article
