4th Circuit Hears Arguments Today on Health Care Law

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit hears arguments this morning in two cases challenging the constitutionality of the federal health care reform law.   In Virginia v. Sebelius (E.D. Va.), Judge Henry Hudson struck down the individual mandate.  While in Liberty University v. Geitner (W.D. Va.), Judge Norman Moon upheld the health insurance requirement and granted the defendants' motion to dismiss. 

More from ABA Journal and the New York Times.

UPDATE:   The panel was comprised of Judges Motz, Davis and Wynn.  Here's the link to the oral arguments.

Thanks to William Gaskill for the update.
