SCOTUS: New look at health care?

By Lyle Denniston

SCOTUSblog

The Supreme Court opened its new term on today by asking the federal government to offer its views on whether the way should be cleared for new constitutional challenges to the federal health care law — including a new protest against the individual mandate the court had upheld last June.  The request for the government’s views came in response to a rehearing request by a religious-oriented institution, Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.  The university’s earlier petition was simply denied in June, so it asked the court to reconsider and wipe out a lower court ruling to revive the university’s religious challenges to both the individual mandate and the separate insurance coverage mandate for employers.

There is also another challenge to the employer mandate, which did not figure in the court’s decision last term.
