Supreme Court revives challenge to President's healthcare law
The Supreme Court revived a legal challenge to President Obama's healthcare law, saying a lower court can consider a challenge to the law's individual mandate. The court revived a suit filed by Liberty University, after a federal appeals court said it could not rule because of the Anti-Injunction Act, a federal law that bars lawsuits against new taxes before they have taken effect. The Supreme Court said the Anti-Injunction Act did not bar challenges to the individual mandate. So Liberty had asked the high court to send its case back to the lower court for a new hearing, since the rationale for declining to rule had been overturned.
