WASHINGTON (AP) — A Christian legal group is appealing a judge's dismissal of its lawsuit against President Barack Obama's requirement that all Americans get health insurance.

The suit claims the requirement is unconstitutional and violates the religious freedom of those who chose not to have insurance because they rely on God to protect them from harm.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler in Washington became the third Democratic-appointed judge to dismiss a challenge to the law, while two Republican-appointed judges have ruled part or all of the law unconstitutional. Kessler wrote in her opinion that the Supreme Court will need to settle the constitutional issues.

The American Center for Law and Justice, a legal group founded by evangelist Pat Robertson, filed notice in court Friday that it was appealing Kessler's ruling.
