Hobby Lobby wins another round in challenge against HHS mandate

Catholic World News - July 19, 2013

A US federal judge has granted the Hobby Lobby stores an injunction stopping enforcement of the HHS mandate to include contraceptive coverage in employee health-care plans.

The courtroom victory for the Oklahoma-based corporation follows on last month’s decision by an appeals court that Hobby Lobby and a partner corporation, Mardel, have the right to challenge the HHS mandate under the terms of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The case has been closely followed because Hobby Lobby is challenging the contraceptive mandate as a for-profit corporation run by religious individuals, rather than as a church-related institution.
