The Supreme Court allows a lower court to revisit a legal challenge to the individual insurance mandate contained in President Barack Obama's landmark healthcare law.
MASSDEVICE ON CALL — The Supreme Court this week revisited the landmark healthcare reform decision that originally upheld the Affordable Care Act's individual insurance mandate.
The Supreme Court decided to allow a lower court to proceed with a case against the law, getting the Obama administration's nod to do so.
The lawsuit, filed by Liberty University, was previously barred when the court ruled that the case was premature on the grounds that the mandate, labeled a tax, couldn't be brought against the measure before it takes effect in 2014.
The Supreme Court's summer decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act included a provision that allowed the measure to be challenged in lower courts, Healthwatch reported.
The Justice Dept. signed off on Liberty University's request to re-open the case, a decision the court granted this week.
