Judge to allow challenge against individual mandate to proceed

A federal judge in Florida on Thursday ruled that the main legal challenge to the new health care law by officials from 20 states could move forward. US District Judge Roger Vinson stated that he was not persuaded that the individual mandate requiring Americans to purchase health insurance is constitutional.

As Vinson has formally rejected the federal government’s motion to dismiss the suit, it will proceed to a full hearing on December 16th.
