Appeals Court In VA Rejects Health Reform Suit

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A federal appeals court in Virginia has rejected a Christian university's bid to overturn the Obama administration's health care reform law.
    
A unanimous three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday affirmed a lower court ruling dismissing Liberty University's lawsuit.
    
Liberty claimed that the law violates the school's religious rights by requiring it to provide coverage for abortion-inducing drugs. The university also claimed the requirement that individuals buy health insurance or pay a penalty is unconstitutional.
    
The panel that rejected Liberty's complaint consists of two Obama appointees - Judges Andre Davis and James Wynn - and Bill Clinton appointee Diana Motz.
