In Virginia, a federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging the Obama administration's federal health care law.
A federal court judge in Lynchburg, Va., has dismissed Liberty University's lawsuit challenging the administration's health care law. The judge in the case has ruled that a provision in the law that requires most individuals to obtain health insurance is constitutional under the Commerce Clause.
He rejected a claim that the law violates the conservative Christian university's religious rights by forcing it to subsidize coverage for abortions.
A Justice Department spokeswoman says they're pleased with the ruling and will continue to vigorously defend the law.
The university says it will immediately appeal the judge's ruling to the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.
