U.S. to Supreme Court: Don't Expand Hobby Lobby Exemption
SCOTUSblog Link to more items from this source
July 2, 2014
"The Obama administration, arguing that the steps it has taken to protect religious objections to birth control by non-profit colleges, hospitals and other charities satisfy federal law, urged the Supreme Court on Wednesday not to expand the exemption.

This was the first court filing by the federal government in the wake of Monday's ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, and it made clear that officials will continue to resist efforts by non-profit religious institutions to gain a complete exemption from the pregnancy prevention mandates of the new federal health care law."
