Setback for organic food company in suit against HHS mandate
October 25, 2013
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has refused to grant an injunction blocking enforcement of the HHS mandate against Eden Foods, an organic food company whose president, Michael Potter, is Catholic.
“We hold that Eden Foods, a secular, for-profit corporation, cannot establish that it can exercise religion, and that Potter cannot establish his standing to challenge obligations placed only upon the corporation, not upon him as an individual,” the court ruled in its unanimous decision, according to an MLive Media Group report.
