Court temporarily halts enforcement of HHS mandate against Illinois company

Catholic World News - January 08, 2013

A federal district court judge has temporarily halted enforcement of the HHS mandate against a for-profit Illinois company owned by two Catholics.

“Plaintiffs Christopher and Mary Anne Yep are ardent and faithful adherents of the Roman Catholic religion,” Judge Amy St. Eve noted in her decision. “The Yeps own and control Plaintiff Triune Health Group, Inc., a for-profit corporation. Triune is a corporation that specializes in facilitating the re-entry of injured workers into the workforce.”

St. Eve granted the injunction, she wrote, because she is bound by the precedent of a higher court (the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals), which recently granted an injunction temporarily barring enforcement of the mandate in a similar case.
