Supreme Court won't hear challenge to employer mandate

The U.S. Supreme Court won't hear a challenge to the healthcare reform law's employer mandate, denying a case brought by Liberty University, CNN reported. The private, Christian university in Lynchburg, Va., claimed the law's mandate was unconstitutional and said employers shouldn't be forced into providing health insurance if they have legitimate moral and religious objections. However, the justices refused to hear the case without providing any comment. It's the second time in as many years the Supreme Court has turned down a review of the employer mandate's constitutionality. Although the high court declined Liberty's challenge, other lawsuits that also seek to overturn the employer mandate are making their way through lower courts. Article
