64 lawsuits pending against HHS mandate

Catholic World News - August 07, 2013

Surveying the legal landscape surrounding the HHS mandate, the National Law Journal finds that “there are approximately 64 challenges to the contraceptive coverage requirement pending. Of those, 36 were filed by for-profit companies. The remaining number have been brought by religiously affiliated nonprofit organizations.”

The article reviews conflicting decisions at the US appeals court level, as well as a recent appellate court decision against Liberty University, which has lodged a more general objection to being compelled to provide any health insurance. The university’s case, according to the National Law Journal, “is definitely headed to the Supreme Court after a remand by the justices in June 2012.”
