A wide-ranging healthcare reform bill seen as a key achievement of Barack Obama's presidency is facing its moment of judgement in the US Supreme Court.

The law, passed in 2010, requires all Americans to obtain health insurance or face a penalty fine.

But conservative opponents of the president say that "mandate" is illegal under the terms of the US constitution.

The justices are expected to rule today, and could cut the mandate or strike down the whole law.
