The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to examine the constitutionality of the health reform law's employer requirements and mandatory coverage of contraceptives without a co-pay.

The move could open the door for President Barack Obama's health law to be back in front of the Supreme Court late next year.

The Supreme Court responded to a request from Liberty University, one of the groups that sued over the health care law's individual mandate in 2010. When the court ruled in June that the mandate was constitutional, it dismissed Liberty's entire lawsuit.

Over the summer, the school asked the Supreme Court to reopen its arguments against the employer mandate and the contraceptive coverage mandate, which it said were not addressed by the court's ruling this summer. The court on Monday agreed to the request and told the Fourth Circuit to hear arguments on the two pieces.
