Denver declines honor for company that challenged Obama mandate

Catholic World News - August 28, 2012

The Denver City Council has backed away from plans to present a “Good Citizenship Award” to a local company that has challenged the Obama administration’s contraceptive mandate in court.

Hercules Industries was to have been honored for its civic contributions and its model labor practices—including its “generous employee health-care coverage.” But City Council member Robin Kniech, who had originally sponsored the honor, said that she had decided not to go through with her plan “in the hope of avoiding a partisan food fight in a rancorous election year.”

In July a federal court granted Hercules Industries an injunction, temporarily halting the implementation of the contraceptive mandate, as part of its challenge to the plan.
