Setback for Archdiocese of Washington in HHS mandate case
April 02, 2014
The United States Supreme Court has decided not to hear appeals of judgments in HHS mandate cases involving the Archdiocese of Washington and Priests for Life.
“The two cases in which review was denied today were both ones in which the non-profit organization took the unusual step of seeking Supreme Court review before the appeal of the district court’s decision was heard and decided by the Court of Appeals,” explained Howard Friedman of the Religion Clause blog.
The cases will now be heard by a federal appellate court.
