Judge rejects health law challenge
from The New York Times
For the second time in two months, a federal judge has upheld the constitutionality of the new health care law, ruling that the requirement that most Americans obtain medical coverage falls within Congress's authority to regulate interstate commerce. The judge, Norman K. Moon of Federal District Court, who sits in Lynchburg, Va., issued a 54-page ruling that granted the government's request to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Liberty University, the private Christian college founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell. In October, in a separate case, Judge George C. Steeh of Federal District Court in Detroit also upheld the law.
