States Permitted to Continue Part of Their Challenge to Healthcare Law

Oct 14, 2010

Judges sides with Attorney Generals against Obamacare

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson has denied the federal government’s request to dismiss all of the claims raised against Obamacare by sixteen state Attorneys General, four state Governors, the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), and private citizens. Judge Vinson’s decision will bolster Liberty Counsel’s opposition to the government’s motion to dismiss the case it filed against Obamacare on behalf of Liberty University and private citizens. 

Read our News Release to find out more about this decision.

Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, will present oral argument opposing the government’s motion to dismiss Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit on October 22, 2010 in Lynchburg Virginia at 1101 Court Street, courtroom one. The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. but anyone wishing to see the proceedings should arrive at least 15 minutes early. Mr. Staver will be available for interviews following the argument.

Mr. Staver commented: “I expected the judge to allow this case to go forward because this new healthcare law is unprecedented in its scope. If Congress can pass a law mandating that every American purchase health insurance, then it could mandate that everyone purchase Chevrolets in order to bring down the price of GM products. At the end of the day this healthcare law will be ruled unconstitutional because it exceeds the authority of Congress. This healthcare law is the most significant threat to personal liberty to come out of Congress. It represents the essential elements of socialism.”
