Today, the United States Supreme Court side-stepped an opportunity to take up Liberty University’s challenge to the entire employer mandate, declining to review the case without comment. Liberty Counsel represents Liberty University and two private individuals in the case of Liberty University v. Lew (formerly Liberty University v. Geithner).
The High Court has decided to take up the HHS contraception and abortion drug mandate, but it is not ready yet to tackle the entire employer mandate. The Liberty University case would make strong arguments that the employer mandate could not be upheld as a tax because the penalties are exorbitantly high and punitive. We will wait on the Court’s ruling next year to decide whether to file a new challenge.
Please pray that the Supreme Court strikes down the HHS contraception and abortion drug mandate.
