Temporary relief from HHS mandate for Legatus, Michigan Catholic business owner

Catholic World News - August 10, 2012

Attorneys for the Obama administration have said that the Department of Health and Human Services will not enforce the HHS mandate against Legatus, the Weingartz Supply Company, and company president Daniel Weingartz until January 1.

In May, the Thomas More Law Center filed suit on behalf of the association of Catholic business leaders and the Weingartz Supply Company, a Michigan-based, family-owned company that sells and services outdoor power equipment. Oral arguments will be heard on September 26.

“Judge [Robert] Cleland’s decision to expedite the briefing schedule and set a quick hearing date for oral arguments on our motion for a preliminary injunction against the Government was crucial,” said attorney Erin Mersino of the Thomas More Law Center. “It best serves our goal of protecting the religious freedoms of our clients.”
