Federal appeals court rules against Catholic business owners in HHS mandate case
September 19, 2013
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has declined to halt the implementation of the HHS mandate against Autocam Corp. and Autocam Medical, two for-profit companies that are owned by Catholics.
The Christian Science Monitor reported that two federal appellate courts have ruled in favor of the mandate, while one has ruled against it--thus increasing the likelihood that the Supreme Court will rule on the mandate's constitutionality.
