Text of Brief by Little Sisters of the Poor, on Appeal to 10th Circuit in Challenge to Contraceptive Mandate (PDF)
The Becket Fund, on behalf of Little Sisters of the Poor and Christian Brothers Services Link to more items from this source
Feb. 25, 2014
74 pages. Excerpt: "[If] the government actually believed EBSA Form 700 to be legally meaningless, it would make no sense at all for the government to have contested the issue all the way to the Supreme Court, and to still be contesting the issue here. Nor would it make sense to threaten the Little Sisters with millions of dollars in fines to get them to sign a supposedly meaningless form. Actions speak louder than briefs, and the government's actions demonstrate that they view their Form as very important.... The government may think the Little Sisters should reason differently about law and morality, but their actual religious beliefs -- the beliefs that matter in this case -- have led them to conclude that they cannot sign or send the government's Form." [Little Sisters of the Poor v. Sebelius, No. 1:13-cv-02611-WJM-BNB (on appeal from D. Colo. Feb. 24, 2014)]
