WASHINGTON, DC (SENATE TV/CNN) – House Speaker John Boehner’s pending lawsuit over President Barack Obama’s executive actions on healthcare wouldn’t make it past a popular TV judge.

Those were the sentiments from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on the Senate floor on Monday.

"This is a phony trial that will come up. It's a show trial, it's what Republicans want,” Reid said. “I guess that's what they want. But if that's really what they want, they should go talk to Judge Judy. I think she would throw this case out in half a second."

The lawsuit targets President Obama’s move to delay the so-called employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act without Congress’ approval.

The mandate requires businesses with more than 50 workers to provide their employees with health insurance.

The mandate now won’t take effect until 2015.
