Court rules that Catholic-owned company may challenge HHS mandate
CWN - March 11, 2013
A US district court judge in western Pennsylvania has ruled a lawsuit filed by the Seneca Hardwood Lumber Company against the HHS mandate may proceed. The for-profit company is owned by a Catholic family.
Judge Joy Flowers Conti, appointed to the bench by President George W. Bush, also dismissed a suit filed by Geneva College because the case was not yet ripe. The Protestant college, affiliated with the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, said in a legal filing that it believes that “the procurement, participation in, facilitation of, or payment for abortion violates the Commandment against murder.”
