Judge dismisses Protestant college’s suit against HHS mandate

Catholic World News - January 10, 2013

A federal district court judge has dismissed a Protestant college’s lawsuit against the HHS mandate.

Judge Christine Arguello, whom President George W. Bush appointed to the bench in 2008, ruled that the lawsuit was not ripe because Colorado Christian University has not yet suffered injury from the mandate, which goes into effect for most religious colleges on August 1.

The college has no objection to offering contraceptive coverage but objects to “providing insurance coverage for, or deliberately providing insurance that would facilitate access to, abortion-inducing drugs, abortion procedures, and related services,” Judge Arguello noted in her decision.
