Federal court blocks enforcement of HHS mandate against Michigan company
Catholic World News - January 02, 2013
A US district court judge has halted enforcement of the HHS mandate against Domino’s Farms, a Michigan property-management company wholly owned by Tom Monaghan.
Monaghan founded Domino’s Pizza in 1960 and sold it in 1998. He later served as chancellor of Ave Maria University.
“Plaintiff has shown that abiding by the mandate will substantially burden his exercise of religion,” ruled Judge Lawrence Zatkoff, a Reagan appointee. “The Government has failed to satisfy its burden of showing that its actions were narrowly tailored to serve a compelling interest.”
Judge Zatkoff’s decision is one of a series of split federal court decisions on the HHS mandate.
