Tomorrow Liberty University Will Appear in Federal Court Challenging Healthcare 

http://lc.org/index.cfm?PID=14102&AlertID=1188

Tomorrow Liberty Counsel will represent Liberty University and five additional clients against the new healthcare law opposing the federal government’s motion to dismiss in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia. 

Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit was filed on the same day the bill was signed into law and was the first private party lawsuit in the nation challenging the 2,409-page healthcare bill, signed into law on March 23, 2010.

Mathew Staver (above center), Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, will present oral argument before Judge Moon tomorrow, October 22, in Lynchburg, Virginia, at 1101 Court Street, at or before 10:00 a.m.

The Liberty Counsel brief states that the plaintiffs’ claims are ripe for review, because the law’s unprecedented intrusion into plaintiffs’ private lives has an immediate effect on their constitutional rights. The government attempted to argue that the law is valid by creating an expansive definition of “interstate commerce” to include regulation of decisions not to buy health insurance. This socialist mentality would allow Congress to nationalize anything on the assumption that all must pay in order to make the object of regulation affordable to all. The power of the federal government to regulate has limits. This healthcare law is far beyond those limits.

Mathew Staver will argue this case tomorrow and there are some ways you can help. Please pray for him in the courtroom tomorrow, pray that God will give him the right words to speak…

…and (pray) for the judge to be sympathetic to our case.

(FYI from TPR: Judge Norman K. Moon, 73, above, was nominated by former President Bill Clinton in October 1997 for his current position, & confirmed by the Senate within a month.  Especially good reason to pray if the Judge is a Democrat(?)!    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_K._Moon?wasRedirected=true .  Photo source:

    Sorry about the layout of these emails (half of it was kicked below the theme footer, see below). The same email was sent to Amplify, WordPress, & Blogger blogs, but those 3 vertically sliced off the text down the entire right margin. At least this posterous blog has all the text showing correctly, even if half of it is below the footer. :-/

Press Release

October 21, 2010

Tomorrow Liberty University Will Appear in Federal Court Challenging Healthcare 

Press conference will follow the oral arguments

http://www.lc.org/index.cfm?PID=14100&PRID=988

Lynchburg, VA – Tomorrow Liberty Counsel will represent Liberty University and five additional clients against the new healthcare law opposing the federal government’s motion to dismiss in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia. Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit was filed on the same day the bill was signed into law and was the first private party lawsuit in the nation challenging the 2,409-page healthcare bill, signed into law on March 23, 2010. Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, will present oral argument before Judge Moon tomorrow, October 22, in Lynchburg, Virginia, at 1101 Court Street, at or before 10:00 a.m.

The argument follows rulings from courts in Richmond, Virginia, and Pensacola, Florida, which have denied the federal government’s motions to dismiss similar lawsuits against the healthcare bill. Last week in Pensacola, Florida, Judge Vinson let stand two causes of action in a suit filed by several state Attorneys General, one which challenges the bill’s Medicaid provisions and another which challenges the individual mandate to purchase insurance as exceeding Congress’s power under the Commerce Clause. The latter claim is also a part of this suit filed by Liberty Counsel and also the subject of this request to dismiss.

The Liberty Counsel brief states that the plaintiffs’ claims are ripe for review, because the law’s unprecedented intrusion into plaintiffs’ private lives has an immediate effect on their constitutional rights. The government attempted to argue that the law is valid by creating an expansive definition of “interstate commerce” to include regulation of decisions not to buy health insurance. According to the government, Congress can compel citizens to involuntarily participate in commerce by mandating that they purchase a product or pay a penalty, merely because they might someday require healthcare. Liberty Counsel challenges these claims as contradictory to the limited powers granted to Congress in the U.S. Constitution.

Mathew Staver commented: “The Department of Justice has argued that Congress can force everyone to buy insurance in order to make it affordable to all. This socialist mentality would allow Congress to nationalize anything on the assumption that all must pay in order to make the object of regulation affordable to all. The power of the federal government to regulate has limits. This healthcare law is far beyond those limits.”
